Information for Parents & Sponsors

Dear Parents and Sponsors:

We care deeply about students’ safety, health, and well-being.

As we face a rapidly changing public health crisis worldwide, we want you to know the proactive steps we have taken so far, and what to expect in the weeks to come.

Our decisions have been consistent with public health advice, the Province’s recommendations for educational institutions, and to support our provincial health care system. We do not make decisions such as these lightly, and we recognize that the current environment presents feelings of uncertainty to our college community. This global crisis is forcing each of us to make sacrifices and changes.

What is the college doing on campus in response to COVID-19?

You can learn more about the college's response to COVID-19 on our Campus Access & Safety page.

What does the fall look like at Assiniboine? Are classes on campus or online?

The majority of programs beginning this fall will take a blended approach with remote and on campus learning. You can read more about that on our Fall 2020 page.

Advice on supporting students as they complete their studies

There are things you can do to support your student to complete their studies and end strong.

Understand that students need:

  • A quiet place and some time to study, complete assignments, and communicate with instructors or classmates.
  • Access to technology in the home, or at a safe place provided for by a sponsor, such as a Band Office.
  • Encouragement to stay focused for just a little longer to complete and wrap up their course requirements.
  • Friendly reminder to check official college communication through their myACC email account.

College supports for students is described on our Keep Learning page.

On behalf of the college and larger community, thank you for trust in Assiniboine Community College, and your support of students during this time. Please continue to check our covid-19 specific webpages, which are being updated continually with new information.
