Good afternoon, Hunter student. Every faculty and staff member at the school hopes you are well and that you have not been affected by the coronavirus. We all know how life has changed in America and around the world.
All public and private K-12 schools in Nassau and Suffolk Counties have been ordered to close for two weeks amid dozens of confirmed cases of the new coronavirus.
As a result, no classes will be held at both the Levittown and Medford campuses for a period of two weeks beginning tomorrow, March 16. Though there will be no classes, the school will still remain open and staffed.
All faculty members for every Hunter program, both day and evening, are meeting at their respective campuses tomorrow to plan online lessons and assignments so your education continues. Since many programs involve hands-on training, curricula may be rearranged so you get all the experience and learning for which you enrolled.
We understand how frustrating it is that the world has turned upside down, but at the same time, we are still dedicated to your educational enrichment and the fulfillment of the purpose for which you came to Hunter.
We will be updating you frequently and provide you with details about online lessons and how they will work. Other things probably on your mind will be addressed, as well, such as attendance records, externship, graduation, the ability to take your licensing exams, and such.
Our highest concern is your health and well-being. We wish you, your family, and friends good health and will be in touch with you tomorrow with more details.
