Welcome to our Daily Roundup, where we highlight today’s breaking news and share stories of Red River College students, instructors and staff rising to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Province of Manitoba is calling on all child-care providers to help those working on the front lines against the COVID-19 pandemic by offering child-care in their own homes, or by supporting child-care centres so they can re-open during this critical time.
Licensed child-care facilities that want to help by re-opening or continuing to have spaces available should notify the province by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Health-care and other emergency services workers can apply for a child-care space by filling out the request form at https://forms.gov.mb.ca/GoMCovid19ESW/.
RRC continues alternative delivery of programs and services
Red River College will continue providing alternative delivery models for programs and services for the upcoming spring and summer terms, which means there will be no classes on campus or public events until September.
Work integrated learning (practicums, clinical, work experience) will continue to be suspended except for those instances that can be completed using online or alternative approaches. Co-op/industry placements will continue at the discretion of the workplace employer.
Locker access and campus access
Students are allowed to continue to come to the Notre Dame and Exchange District Campuses to clean out their lockers, and retrieve any personal items they may still have at the College. Students can attend between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. Once your belongings have been retrieved, and your locker is cleaned out, students must leave the campus immediately.
Students in trades programs who need to pick up tools, PPE, and other personal effects from shops and labs should email their instructor or coordinator to organize a pick-up time.
More information about accessing our all of our campuses, along with information to advise RRC Security when you’ve arrived on-campus, can be found here.
RRC will be issuing refunds for active student parking permits from March 18, 2020 to April 30, 2020. After April 30, parking won’t be charged to students until the College resumes normal operations. As per College policy, if a parking permit was purchased with a credit card, the refund will go back to the same credit card. All non-credit card payments will be reimbursed with a mailed cheque.
