Germanna announces plans for resuming classes

Germanna Community College President David Sam has formulated his plan for resuming classes.

Nursing and dental hygiene students will restart on Tuesday. All other students will resume on Sept. 6, the day after Labor Day, college spokesman Mike Zitz tells me.

Details still haven’t been worked out on where students will meet who had been in class in the Earl V. Dickinson Building of the Fredericksburg Area Campus. However, Dr. Sam is seeking to find a way to place them somewhere on the same campus.  The workforce building was not damaged in Tuesday’s earthquake.

The Dickinson building suffered significant structural damage and won’t be repaired until at least the spring semester, college officials have told me.

Germanna will be posting additional updates on its web site including details on changes to class meeting locations.
