Spring break has been scrapped at North Georgia Technical College and graduation has been postponed as the school continues to grapple with fallout from the pandemic.
NGTC, like other colleges and universities in the state, has been conducting classes online for some time and that will continue until at least April 13.
All face-to-face classes continue to be suspended and activities for students and guests are postponed, school officials said in a press release issued Thursday.
Spring break, scheduled for the week of April 6, will now be an online instruction week for the college. Also, the end of the term, originally scheduled for April 30 has been extended one week to May 7 for programs needing additional time to complete requirements. Students with questions regarding their particular class timeline and situation are encouraged to email and discuss with their individual instructors. Students are asked to check their student email daily.
Summer term, which is scheduled to begin May 20, remains on schedule for now.
Only essential employees will continue to report to campus, and faculty and staff continue to telecommute.
The college’s COVID-19 response team continues to monitor the situation and will communicate changes as soon as possible. Updates will be announced on the college Facebook page or at northgatech.edu.
