Kid's College cancelled.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Cloud County Community College has made the decision to cancel this year’s Kid’s College.

 

“While we are extremely disappointed to make this decision, we feel it is in the best interest of public health,” said Dr. Adrian Douglas, Cloud County president. “Due to the nature of the activities that take place during Kid’s College, and the large number of participants, we did not feel we could adequately practice social distancing to keep kids safe.”

 

Kid’s College was originally scheduled for July 13-15 on the Concordia campus. Historically, nearly 300 kids from the area had attended the event. Douglas said the number of kids in close proximity, while also sharing supplies, would make social distancing nearly impossible.

 

“We definitely do not want to undo what we, as a community, have done to mitigate the spread of COVID-19,” Douglas said. “I know there will be a lot of disappointed future T-Birds who can’t attend one of our largest community events. But rest assured, we plan to continue Kid’s College next year.”
