Hello Knights,

Starting on Friday, October 23rd, the following procedures will be put into place:

  • All online classes will continue operating as they have been. 
  • Labs in the essential workforce categories such as Nursing, Welding, Automotive, Agriculture, Truck Driving, Fire, or EMS sectors will also not be affected. 
  • Lecture classes associated with entrance into an essential workforce class will be held outdoors as appropriate or will move to an online format. Students in these classes should contact their instructors for more information.   
  • The Bookstore will continue to be open and will be required to limit capacity to 25%.  
  • Library pick up will be by appointment only.  Please visit the Shasta College website for an appointment
  • The Student Health Center will be providing services via telehealth only.  Please visit the Health & Wellness App in the Shasta Portal for a telehealth appointment.
