Fall Quarter instruction at SPSCC will remain primarily virtual, but some in-person options will be added.
As we get closer to registration for Fall Quarter 2021, we have more details about what instruction will look like.
Most instruction will remain online in Fall Quarter, but in-person options will be added in areas where students struggled the most to succeed online:
Today we learned that an SPSCC student has tested positive for COVID-19 after visiting the Olympia Campus last week. Based on what we know about this situation, we believe there is low risk that others on campus were exposed.
This is our understanding of the timeline associated with this case:
The Library and the Leonor R. Fuller Gallery re-open, with limited capacity, for Spring Quarter.
In-person library support, tutoring, and computer labs will be available in the Library (Bldg. 22) on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. starting April 13.
Reservations will be required; we’ll share sign-up links before the start of the quarter. Virtual Library and tutoring services will also be available on their normal schedule.
SPSCC today announced that its undocumented students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic now have access to emergency funding through the Washington Undocumented Student Relief Grant (WUSRG). The $5 million funding source stems from House Bill 1368 which was signed into law by Gov. Inslee in Feb. 2021.
This week we learned that Serendipity Children's Center, the provider that operates our childcare center in building 20, has had two confirmed cases of COVID-19 associated with their onsite center. They have notified their parents and staff, are in regular contact with public health authorities, and are keeping our Security team updated as they learn more.
SPSCC today announced it has received $1.5 million to support students impacted by COVID-19. Any student who has been directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and is eligible can request funds through a COVID Emergency Needs Form.
Each eligible student can apply for a one time award of $500 for the purchase of a laptop or up to $500 each quarter for food, housing, or tuition due (up to $500).
As COVID-19 continues to impact public health, Spring Quarter instruction at SPSCC will remain primarily virtual. Most classes will be offered as online, virtual, or hybrid classes, like fall and winter quarters. We will continue to offer some in-person services for students on the Olympia Campus on the same schedule we are currently using (Mon. – Thurs., 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.).
In an update on Dec. 29, SPSCC shared that it was resuming limited in-person services through at least Jan. 14. We remain confident in our health and safety procedures and have decided to continue to offer limited in-person services on our Olympia Campus.
The in-person activities that remain open, following strict health and safety guidelines, are:
