Dear Community Education Students:
Modesto Junior College is evaluating the pool situation. We are sorry about not having sent out another communication regarding the status however we are not aware at this time of how long it will take to have the pool and the surrounding area up and running.
We are currently trying to find alternate sites in the community and will be meeting to discuss this with community leaders on Tuesday. We will have a better picture of what is available after that meeting. Community Education values your business and we continue working to provide you with the best service possible. Once we have a clearer picture of what is available we will provide you with information regarding cancelled classes, credit towards future classes or reimbursements, and information on when classes will resume.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call (209) 575-6063. We thank you for your patience and are sorry for the inconvenience.
Thank you, Elizabeth Orozco-Wittke, Manager
