Earlier this afternoon, Governor Wolf and the state Department of Education ordered all public and private schools to remain closed for the remainder of the school year according to local school calendars. This ends any possibility of Lancaster County Career & Technology Center students, faculty, and staff returning to resume on-campus classes during this school year.
Class instruction for secondary classes will be conducted online for the remainder of the year. Those post-secondary courses that have implemented online instruction will also continue online as long as institutions of higher education are prohibited from offering in-person instruction.
The LCCTC Administration is working on plans to close out the school year online and managing all of the associated details. We are investigating any possible alternatives to Certificates and Awards Night and when and how students and staff may return to campuses to retrieve personal belongings. Many further details like these will be solidified in the near future.
As always, please watch the LCCTC website for the most current information and resources regarding the shutdown. We will continue to inform the LCCTC community about updates via the One Call system.
This decision from the state is disappointing but understandable. We are particularly sympathetic that this situation has impacted what should have been a crowning year for our high school students. This isn’t the way that any of us wanted to finish out the school year. We all must remember that these upheavals to our routines and daily lives are the most effective ways to combat the spread of COVID-19.
Please watch for updates from the LCCTC and be safe.
