The University of Wyoming has released its proposed spring 2021 semester plan, which includes 10 weeks of in-person instruction, a three-day spring break, and five weeks of fully online classes.

The semester would start with two days of online instruction on January 21-22, with face to face classes beginning on Monday, January 25.

After a short spring break from March 31-April 4, all classes would move to online delivery, with the last day of classes set for May 6, and finals week taking place from May 10-14.

The draft plan represents the university’s best effort to deliver as much of an exceptional on-campus experience as possible amid the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

To mitigate the impact of possibly infected students returning to campus, the draft plan includes a “limited contact period” for students January 14-31. During that period, students would be allowed to attend in-person classes, participate in work and worship engagements, and be outside, however, they would be expected to limit their in-person contacts to people living on the same floor of a residence hall or the same apartment/residence.

Though the university intends to facilitate making a COVID-19 vaccine available as soon as possible, it’s uncertain when students and employees will have access to the vaccine.

Additionally, no classes would be held on Presidents Day Monday, Feb. 15.
