Homeschooling Support Resources
The Taskforce has received a lot of feedback about the challenges our parents and children have faced over the last several weeks and wanted to provide support. Ms. Ivy Champion, an NCC Homeschool parent of over 10 years, has recorded an AMAZING video to provide you with some suggestions to ease the transition to homeschooling, including topics such as:
- Family Calendaring
- Learning Spaces
- ...And many more!

COVID19 is a novel virus that spreads from person to person, usually within about six feet of each other through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes…but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.What Are The Symptoms Of COVID-19?
Patients with COVID-19 have experienced mild to severe respiratory illness including fever, cough and shortness of breath. For more information: http://www.cdc.gov/COVID19-symptoms https://www.who.int/news-room/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses,Is There Anything You Can Do To Stop The Spread Of These Germs?
- Wear a mask at all times when you are out in public settings, around people who don't live in your household and when you can't stay 6 feet away from others. Masks help stop the spread of COVID-19 to others.
- Wash your hands. It’s basic. It’s simple. But, it is very effective because COVID-19 is a contagious respiratory disease that is spread easily and removing the microorganisms from your hands is highly effective. So, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds…about the time it takes you to sing Happy Birthday two times.
- Practice strict social distancing by maintaining at least a six-foot distance between you and everybody else.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Northwest Career College has implemented a plan to address COVID -19 on our campus sites. We will need your help, however, in keeping everyone healthy and safe. Here are a few of the policies we have implemented:
- If you are sick, stay home. This applies to all staff, faculty and students. You should contact your physician…do not show up without an appointment as they may have special instructions for you.
- Upon arrival on campus, put on your facial covering before exiting your vehicle (facial coverings must be worn at all times while on the NCC campus), your temperature will be taken by our security team and a series of health screening questions will be asked of you.
- If you have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19, please notify the security guard upon arrival, your instructor, academic advisor or career services advisor.
- During all on campus lab sessions, both a facial covering and a face shield will be required.
- If needed, there is free, on-site COVID-19 testing available for all students.
- Social distancing will be practiced during all classes and throughout every area of the campus, both inside and out of doors.
- Remote Tutoring will be available for all students.
- Remote Make Up Sessions will be available for all students.
- We are working with all of our extern sites to share with them our COVID-19 protocols and to learn theirs. Although we cannot be 100% certain of each site’s response should you fall ill, we will work diligently with them to schedule a “back to work” plan.
- Northwest has created a Task Force to address any issue that arises from COVID-19 as it pertains to our students, staff and faculty. They have developed plans for any circumstance that may arise on campus. If circumstances change, you will hear from a member of the NCC staff or faculty.
