WVC classes to remain online through winter quarter

Wenatchee Valley College will continue to offer the majority of classes online for winter quarter.

WENATCHEE – Wenatchee Valley College will continue to offer the majority of classes online for winter quarter, due to safety concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Classes will be offered in winter in the same ways they are currently being offered: all lecture classes will be online, and a small number of approved hands-on classes will be able to meet in person following strict health and safety protocols.

Until the college receives further guidance from the local health districts or the governor’s office, both WVC campuses will also remain closed to the public and to any students not attending limited in-person classes.

Those who are on campus or are visiting campus are being asked to wear a mask or face covering, practice good hygiene, social distancing and to stay home if sick. The residence hall will remain open to residents in a limited capacity, but social distancing has been implemented.

College leadership has not yet made a decision regarding spring quarter. If action is taken to keep the majority of classes online for spring quarter, students and the community will be notified.

Until the college receives further guidance from the local health districts or the governor’s office, both WVC campuses will remain closed to students and the public and employees currently working from home will continue to do so.
