Highline officials prepare for safe fall return; some classes to be in-person

Highline is ready to welcome some students back on campus this fall, but things will look much different than they did before the COVID-19 pandemic began.

A recent announcement from the office of Highline’s President Dr. John Mosby said, “When fall quarter begins, we can expect approximately 25 percent of classes to have some form of on-campus component. Currently, 67 courses will be offered in-person across a wide variety of subject areas.”

Highline will soon return to in-person classes

Starting Fall Quarter 2021, Highline will see the partial return of students to in-person classrooms.

A plan to slowly re-integrate students, staff and faculty is in effect.

With vaccinations continuing to pump out and cases drop, classroom capacities will be decided as the return plan unfolds, said Danielle Slota, director for the office of the college president.

Highline students hope for return to in-person classes

Many Highline students and faculty alike hope that the pandemic will be under control by Fall Quarter 2021, so that some classes can return to in-person meeting.

While nothing is set in stone yet, Highline officials have been discussing returning to some form of in-person classes this fall.
