Coronavirus Update

Public Notice Update: Tuesday–April 28, 2020 @ 6:00 p.m.

Dear Students,

I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones doing well. These last several weeks have been challenging and I thank you for your patience and cooperation as we all follow the advice provided by public health experts who are working to keep COVID-19 from spreading.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 global pandemic is still with us and Governor Herbert has directed that Mountainland Technical College maintain our current, closed status until June 1, 2020.

Over the next several weeks, our faculty and staff will continue to work tirelessly to ensure a safe return to classes and the world-class education and training you have come to expect.

I encourage you to visit http://mtec.edu. There, beginning next week, we will add important information in preparation for the college’s re-opening, currently planned for Monday, June 1, 2020. For instance, when we return, there will be certain health considerations, such as required facial coverings, in place to ensure the safety and health of our community. These health and safety considerations will be in compliance with CDC and Utah Department of Health recommendations and they will be communicated across our campuses and website.

It is important to remember that this public health crisis is evolving and our date of return could still change. I commit to being as transparent as possible with you, and will communicate information I learn to you as quickly and clearly as I can.

Also, our 2020 Graduation originally planned for May 16, 2020 is now tentatively scheduled to be held in the fall. We are currently working with the UCCU Center at Utah Valley University to secure a date in August and will update you when we learn more. You and your fellow classmates have worked very hard to earn your certificate and deserve to celebrate with your friends, families, and school staff in recognition of your significant achievement.

If you have any questions moving forward, please feel free to reach out directly to your instructor. I am confident that by working together we will emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever.

 

Best Regards,
Clay Christensen
President
Mountainland Technical College
