Spring Break to Begin Immediately, For 2 weeks

Very important message from Dr. John Gossett, MTCC President (8:22 pm): In the ever-changing environment which we are living through, things seem to be changing at an increasing rate. The world is facing an unprecedented challenge of which we have rarely seen. Your Leadership Team at MTCC has spent the weekend staying abreast of latest data and information from reliable sources (CDC, WHO, NCDHHS) and have taken direction from SACSCOC, the System Office and Governor concerning the health and well-being of you and our students. This afternoon (Saturday, 3/14) the Governor declared all K-12 school systems to close for two weeks. As a result, we have made the following decisions: - Spring Break will begin Monday, March 16th and continue for two weeks through the 27th. Click the headline for more information.

A Message from President Gossett

From Dr. Gossett, MTCC President: First, last and always, the health of our MTCC family is paramount in our thinking. Your leadership team met at noon yesterday to sketch out a plan for the remainder of the semester. In 24 hours that plan appears to have changed. Momentarily (4:30 PM Saturday afternoon), the Governor will announce that all public K-12 schools in NC will close effective 3/16. We know that will have a huge impact on us, as he will say that Universities and Community Colleges are to remain open. The System Office is working with Community College Presidents to devise a plan for all students. Buckle up and stay tuned!
