Stanstead College has amended the usual fall schedule to ensure the safest possible environment for students and teachers. To this end, school will be in session from September 7 to December 4 inclusive with 3-day breaks October 9-12 and November 13-16. Residences will remain open over the weekend breaks and boarding students will be asked to remain on campus. Following the winter break, classes resume online January 7, with students who travelled outside Canada quarantining on campus and domestic students remaining at home. In-person classes will begin January 21.
We have developed a schedule for students on campus in class, with others learning virtually in different time zones. We also have a schedule for students on campus in class with others on campus learning virtually due to distancing regulations. Both scenarios represent hybrid learning environments to be deployed depending on guidelines from MEES and Quebec Public Health as circumstances evolve.
Universities and colleges around the world are sensitive to the unique situation facing the Class of 2021. Like high schools, these institutions are adjusting to new ways of learning, including distance and hybrid environments. The University Guidance Department is working with our university and college partners to ensure students have a smooth and successful transition to university.
