Spring at Clark College – what you need to know
- The college is offering a wide array of classes in online, in-person, and hybrid (a mix of online and in-person) formats.
- Clark College is a fully vaccinated campus. All students and employees must provide documentation that they are fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption on file. Learn more on our Student Vaccination page.
- Beginning March 19, masks are optional in most Clark College settings. Masks will continue to be required for all allied health and other academic programs with clinical components as well as in our childcare center.
- Beginning April 4, social distancing will no longer be required in most Clark College settings.
- Everyone coming to campus must complete an online health screening before each visit. Learn more on our Visiting Campus page.
- Existing cleaning protocols are continuing through the spring term.
- The college strongly encourages wearing masks indoors during the first two weeks of spring term because many people will be returning to campus from travel over Spring Break and mobility will be increasing in our surrounding community. Please monitor yourself daily for symptoms and stay home if you are sick. It is also strongly recommended that you follow CDC Guidelines before, during and after you travel.
- During spring term, students can access most services—including Cannell Library—either virtually or in-person. Some in-person services may have limited hours or availabilty.
- Many student activities—including athletics, music practice, and club events—have returned to in-person formats, though with added safety precautions in place to protect everyone’s health.
- Child and Family Studies (child care) remains open in a limited capacity.
- Students and employees (who are vaccinated or have an exemption) who have been exposed to someone who has tested positive may still come to campus—e.g., if you are living with someone who is positive and you are symptom-free, you can still come to campus.
- What actions should a Clark College student or employee take if they have COVID 19 symptoms or have tested positive?
These decisions comply with Gov. Jay Inslee's proclamation covering how higher education should operate. College leadership has used that guidance, as well as input from local public health authorities, to develop the college’s Covid-19 Exposure Control, Mitigation and Recovery Plan.
