In response to the COVID-19 mitigation efforts outlined by Governor Wolf, SCEC is suspending all physical classes until schools are again open to the public (TBD-tentatively April 6th). At this time, we will continue to check emails, phone messages, and incoming mail. Any class scheduled to start during the closure will be pushed back, rescheduled, and/or cancelled. This includes our computer courses offerings starting on April 30th, please send your registration form and check payable to SCEC, PO Box 355, Mahanoy City, PA 17948 to save your spot (limited seats available). No check will be cashed for classes until it is certain that we will be open and classes will run; your check will be returned to you by mail if a class you are registered for is cancelled due to extended COVID closures or rescheduled for a later date which you are not available to attend. We have disinfected and sanitized our facilities for your return when it is deemed safe. Please take care and stay safe, we look forward to your return.
