As educational pedagogy has continued to develop, the effectiveness of blended learning (including face-to-face, virtual, and online) has become more apparent. In particular, face-to-face instruction is still a critical piece of the learning dynamic. Even so, there will be instances where virtual learning is appropriate and successful and may be necessary due to travel restrictions or health concerns which force isolation or quarantine.

If the student is not well and needs to isolate or quarantine, he or she is expected to follow the instructions as outlined in the "Coronavirus Response Plan" located at the following link: To accommodate this situation, Zoom sessions are available for all classes. Please communicate to your professors if you are going to be attending classes virtually due to illness. Zoom attendance will count if the camera is on and the student is present on the screen and fully engaged for the duration of the class.
