SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. - (KNEP) - Western Nebraska Community College is shifting the remainder of its campus-based functions and services to remote operations.
According the school, most faculty and staff will be working from home and visitors will not have access to buildings after 4p on Friday, March 27th until further notice. A limited number of essential personnel will continue to report for duty but all other employees are encouraged to refrain from entering campuses.
A handful of career and technical education classes will continue meeting onsite following strict social-distancing guidelines until it is no longer feasible to do so. These include: automotive technology, aviation maintenance, collision repair & refinish technology, powerline construction & maintenance technology and welding technology.
All current scheduled campus events and lifelong learning classes are canceled through May 1st. Future events will be re-assessed at that time. In the meantime, WNCC is exploring alternative delivery methods as a way to continue to serve their communities.
The main college phone number can still be used to reach faculty and staff. Calls and voicemails will be forwarded to those working from home. Faculty and staff can also be reached via email.
