Gonzales: Why Maricopa County Community College District classes are suspended through April 5


All in-person and hybrid classes are suspended through Sunday, April 5. All current online classes will continue to be held as scheduled.

Faculty are currently working on moving existing in-person and hybrid classes to alternative or online learning environments when appropriate for the remainder of the Spring semester.

The Maricopa Community Colleges remain open; however, the majority of students, staff, and faculty will not need to --- and should not come to campus.

Faculty and staff are asked to continue their professional work remotely.

Some essential personnel will continue to provide critical services at our colleges.

However, anyone 65 years of age or older and/or who suffers from chronic conditions should not come to any college or any of our other locations.

Unless further orders by local health authorities or other government officials mandate a different policy, we plan to implement remote learning solutions beginning the week of April 6.

We are taking these measures out of an abundance of caution. The health and wellbeing of our community is our No. 1 priority during these challenging times.
