SRJC extends remote instruction through May 23, keeps campuses and sites closed to the public

April 1, 2020, Santa Rosa, CA – In order to comply with “shelter in place” orders and in the interests of public health, Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) plans to continue remote instruction and student services through May 23. Events are canceled through this time and this district is considering alternatives for major events, including Commencement and Celebrate CE (Career Education). Campuses and sites remain temporarily closed to the public.

Until the coronavirus pandemic is no longer a threat to our community, SRJC requests students and members of the public remain away from all SRJC facilities, including athletic fields and other outdoor spaces. While the college’s continued goal is to be a resource for our community, it must currently do so in remote formats only.
 
SRJC President Frank Chong said that it is important that members of the public remain away from all college locations while they are closed. Large numbers of people have been congregating on district fields and other outdoor spaces, which increases risk to these individuals and to emergency service workers on site, including the district police department.
 
“For over 100 years we have consistently invited the community to our campuses. SRJC is typically a place where people can connect during times of crisis,” he said. “But now, the best way we can support one another is to remain at a safe distance.”
 
The college continues to monitor the situation and will provide further updates as possible. More information is available at www.santarosa.edu
