Metro Wire Staff

Mid-State Technical College on Sunday announced it starting its 2020 spring break one week early.

The college has canceled all classes and student events during March 16-27. The extra week off will be used by Mid-State staff to finalize “alternate instructional formats,” according to a press statement from the school.

Those attending classes through workforce and economic development or apprenticeship will be notified of class status.

A tentative start date for online classes has been set for Monday, March 30, and will operate through April 10. Some classes may not be available online, the school said, adding that affected students will be contacted by email.

Mid-State campuses and services will remain open during this time, including the LiNK and SSIC areas at each campus.
