Tennessee College of Applied Technology Pulaski (TCAT-Pulaski) has reopened its campus after temporarily closing out of caution due to COVID-19.
Required safety measures are in place, including masks for visitors, faculty and staff. Plexiglass partitions are now in the lobby area and social distancing guidelines are in place.
Students are slowly returning to classes as well. These are scheduled in a staggered manner to keep groups to 10 or less and allow room for distancing protocol.
TCAT-Pulaski President Mike Whitehead expressed his appreciation for everyone’s cooperation.
“The health and safety of our students and staff are our top priority," Whitehead said. "When spring break passed, it was determined that the best course of action was to not hold in-person classes and deliver instructional content completely online. Instructors worked tirelessly to transition as much of their program content as possible to an online format. Students were brought to campus in small groups for orientation to online learning.
“Now we cautiously are returning to on-campus classes. Our students have been very understanding and have worked hard to adapt. Our staff have worked hard to continue to meet the needs of the college and our students working from home. Now we’re back and ready to serve our students.”
TCAT-Pulaski is accepting new applicants as classes continue. Staff are on campus to help applicants face-to-face, albeit with CDC guidelines in place.
