UWS Extends Spring Break + Goes Online As Part Of COVID-19 Plans
The University of Wisconsin-Superior isn't taking chances with the COVID-19 virus. As of this writing - there have been no known or confirmed cases in the Twin Ports area. Nonetheless, UWS is taking steps in advance of any potential outbreak - by extending the already-planned spring break and holding classes online - temporarily - when the semester resumes.
According to details released by the university, UWS will break for spring break on March 16 - as planned. To balance human-to-human interaction, UWS has extended the scheduled spring break by one week; classes will now resume on Monday, March 30. During the spring break, university officials are asking students to get away from campus.
That request to stay off campus continues after classes resume on March 30. In addition, the university will deliver all class materials via an alternative source - using online options - to keep students out of direct contact with each other. At this time, UWS is looking at resuming "normal" classroom interaction on April 13.
