At NPRC, we put our students and communities first. Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and safety of those we work with and those we serve amidst the current public health concerns, NPRC will be transitioning to remote delivery of instruction and encouraging all faculty and staff to work from home beginning Monday, March 16.
We are thankful that our instructional delivery model already allows for considerable flexibility in operating remotely, so classes will continue much the same as usual. Classes will occur on the same days and times as scheduled, but most instructors and students will be participating from their homes at least until April 10.
NPRC is closely monitoring this situation and recognizes that the public health concerns and protocols related to the Coronavirus are continually evolving. We will continue to re-evaluate based on regional circumstances and provide updates from the Pennsylvania Health Department and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

As we navigate the continuing public health and safety crisis, NPRC continues to put students and communities first. Therefore, we will continue remote instruction delivery for the remainder of the Spring 2020 term.
All class meetings will be recorded and released as needed. We value now more than ever student-teacher interactions and continue to encourage students to attend classes at the appointed days and times. We do understand that technology challenges some areas may face with bandwidth issues and are committed to helping students have the opportunity to review instruction as needed.
Our staff will continue to work remotely until further notice. They are monitoring incoming phone calls and messages and will respond as quickly as possible. Students who have a technology challenge outside of class times, you may fill out this online form or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For help during class sessions, our Instructional Support Specialist, Regina Russell can be contacted via email at email@example.com or by cell at 814-584-0067.
NPRC administration will continue to monitor the evolving situation closely and will continue to re-evaluate our actions based on regional circumstances. Additional updates will be provided as they become available. We appreciate everyone’s patience during these trying times.
