Flint Hills Technical College plans for upcoming summer, fall semesters

EMPORIA, Kan. – Flint Hills Technical College President Dean Hollenbeck has outlined the college’s plans for upcoming summer and fall semesters during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our primary goal is to continue to provide quality hands-on education while keeping all of our students and employees safe,” Dr. Hollenbeck said. “We are communicating regularly with the Lyon County Health Department and working collaboratively with them to determine best practices moving forward.”

The majority of Flint Hills Technical College summer courses will be moved to an online format, beginning May 26, 2020. Some programs will be meeting in a face-to-face format to complete hands-on components and certifications for these programs. Students will receive notification from their program instructor with additional information.

All those on the FHTC campus will be adhering to the social distancing guidelines from the Lyon County Health Department including six-feet spacing, wearing masks, and frequent hand washing or use of hand sanitizer.

At this time, FHTC plans to resume face-to-face classes for the fall semester beginning Aug. 17, 2020, with the understanding that these plans could change based on county or state phases and guidance.
