On March 11, St. Scholastica officials announced that Spring Break would be extended by one week, and that classes will be offered virtually from Monday, March 23, until at least April 8, 2020. College administrators made the decision out of an overabundance of caution as COVID-19 was designated as a pandemic by the World Health Organization.
St. Scholastica’s leadership will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation in considering whether and when in-person instruction resumes. Meanwhile, campuses and sites will continue operations during the extended spring break. Non-essential employees will be encouraged to work from home.
All upcoming College-sponsored international travel has been suspended through the end of the semester and College-sponsored domestic travel is limited to business-critical trips.
