NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Mid-Plains Community College has made the decision to cancel classes this week.
Mid-Plains Community College President, Ryan Purdy said, "After discussions with local public health officials, state representatives, and other regional school partners, Mid-Plains Community College will be cancelling classes Monday, March 16, through Saturday, March 28 in our continued effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the communities within our service area."
Online classes will continue as scheduled. Faculty and staff will report accordingly as we prepare for remote delivery of courses. Residence halls and food service will remain open during this time for those students that are unable to return home.
Purdy said applied tech courses and other courses with required labs will resume on campus on Sunday March 29. There will be some exceptions based on certain programs so students are encouraged to communicate with their instructors about the adjusted expectations and format of their courses moving forward.
They initially planned to hold classes and then close March 22-April 4, but said continued developments and discussions over the weekend required them to adjust.
