GRAND RAPIDS — GRCC is offering more access to students and more classes head to virtual learning on Wednesday.

Along with reducing the number of staff member, they're also working to help students facing food shortages. School officials say food pantry will be open once a week to help students. The food pantry, located on the first floor of the Student Center, will remain open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays.

“We are in this together. Students need to know we stand ready to help. Since March, our faculty and staff found innovative ways to continue serving students in the safest possible environment. That will continue as we work through these latest developments.”

Officials say students attending remote classes will be provided with loaner laptops and wireless hotspots.

A few classes will still be held on campus with strict protocols. Students attending the police academy and nursing classes will still have on site learning. Dental, medical assistant, radiologic technology, occupational therapy assistant, certified nurse assistant and first responder classes will also carry on as scheduled.
