Coronavirus Update

March 13, 2020 Alex Long

WTMC Families,

Governor Whitmer has closed K-12 schools in our state. This is an important step to reduce transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus. As a result, the WTMC office will be closed until April 6, 2020. For now, WTMC faculty, counselors, and advisors will continue to work with our students by offering online learning and remote advising. Students will receive email instructions from their classroom teachers and BASE advisor today. Please encourage your students to check email once per day if possible.

At this point, Washtenaw Community College remains open but under modified conditions. The majority of college class instruction will move online. College faculty will notify students of plans for online learning and / or modified class sessions starting next week. 

We know that school offers more to families than just classroom learning. Below you will find a list of resources that may be helpful if your family is experiencing stress during this time.

Our community’s response to the coronavirus has been changing quickly. We expect more changes to come. We are committed to continuing the work of teaching and learning while taking steps to reduce risk of illness across our entire society.
