UWSP spring break extended
By city times staff
STEVENS POINT – Spring break on all three UW-Stevens Point campuses have been extended and face-to-face classes suspended, as school officials address concerns.
“With increased uncertainties around the spread of the coronavirus, UW-Stevens Point is extending spring break by one week,” Chancellor Bernie Patterson said in a statement. “Classes will resume March 30, at which point we will suspend in-person classes and shift to alternative delivery methods. This applies to all three UW-Stevens Point campuses and field stations.
“Our top priority continues to be protecting the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. This includes taking precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to our campuses. The goal of the two-week break is to give faculty additional time to develop alternative delivery methods for their classes, which may be needed for the remainder of the spring semester.”
Students were asked to take all instructional materials for their classes as well as essential personal items and prescription medications with them when they left for spring break, with spring break running March 14-29.
Classes are scheduled to resume March 30 with alternative delivery methods. No face-to-face classes will be held on campus until further notice.
More information about alternative delivery methods of class will be communicated to students via email by March 29.
