Students:

On May 13, 2020, the PA Department of Education issued guidance that allows Practical Nursing programs in counties designated as Yellow or Green to resume in-person instruction. Beginning Tuesday, May 26, a limited number of Practical Nursing courses will be held in the facility, while Erie County remains in the Yellow or Green phases. If Erie County is moved to the Red Phase, in-person classes will return to the online environment.

The school intends to continue to operate in a manner that is best designed to prevent or mitigate the spread of COVID-19 to ensure the safety of our students, employees, and families. Therefore, to begin, there will only be 2 classes scheduled in the building each day. Please contact your instructor or Program Director for changing class schedules.

Instruction must still employ social distancing measures, universal masking and all DOH and CDC guidelines. Because of our small class sizes and large classrooms, we are able to meet all the guidelines set by the Department.

According to the current guidance, all other programs will remain in the online environment until Erie County is in the Green Phase.

To all GLIT Students Scheduled for Classes at the Main Campus

The health and safety of our students and employees has always been paramount, especially in these uncertain and unique times. In light of recent recommendations made by State, Local, and Federal agencies regarding the COVID-19 virus, all classes at the main campus will remain online at least through May 8, 2020. TG students also will remain on a break through May 8, 2020.

At the end of that period, we will again review recommendations by government and health officials and update our communication regarding whether we will continue teaching in an online environment, or return to our building for classroom training. Your teachers will be here to help you every step along the way. We are committed to our students and ensuring that you have the best opportunity to succeed. Thank you for your patience through this trying time.

If you are currently on Leave of Absence and would like to extend your leave, or if you’d like to request a Leave of Absence due to COVID-related issues, you may fill out our online form at www.glit.edu/loa. A school official will reach out to you within 24 hours of your request.
