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 helpdesk@rrcnpa.org. For help during class sessions, our Instructional Support Specialist, Regina Russell can be contacted via email at rrussell@rrcnpa.org 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.

As we continue to learn more about the path of COVID-19 and the state’s efforts to contain it, NPRC will continue to offer classes through remote delivery this summer. Many of our instructional locations will continue to be closed through the beginning of our first summer session. All class meetings will continue to be recorded and released as needed. As soon as it is allowed and reasonable, we will return to our regular instructional delivery.

Based on information from the World Health Organization, the CDC, and other public health and infectious disease specialists, it appears that we will see a resurgence of infection in the fall semester. When specifically that will occur will be difficult to predict, but we are planning for the fall semester with the consideration of the health and well being of our students, faculty, staff, and communities at the forefront.

With that said, NPRC has made the decision to continue offering classes remotely during the fall 2020 semester. We will continue to monitor this situation and make a decision about class delivery for Spring 2021 no later than the beginning of November.

NPRC will continue to follow state regulations and recommendations during this time and our staff will continue to work remotely. They are monitoring incoming phone calls and messages and will respond as quickly as possible.
