Spring Class Schedule

Los Rios Vaccine Requirement to be Lifted for Students and Employees November 14

On October 19, the Los Rios Board of Trustees voted to end our district’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement for employees and students as soon as practicable. The vaccine requirement will be lifted for all Los Rios students and employees beginning on Monday, November 14.


Beginning on November 14:

Any student or employee can access any Los Rios facility regardless of their vaccination status.

Students and employees with approved medical or religious exemptions no longer need to provide a negative test in order to come to any college or district facility. 

Students enrolling for the Spring 2023 semester will not need to upload any vaccination information in order to enroll in in-person classes.


Los Rios will continue to heed all relevant guidance and requirements from state and local public health experts relating to measures to mitigate the spread of infection. As we have consistently over the past several years, if public health guidance changes then we will respond accordingly. 


Public health remains a top priority for Los Rios and our colleges. Consistent with guidance from local public health experts, we continue to strongly recommend wearing masks and appropriate face coverings when indoors. We also strongly recommend that everyone eligible continue to stay up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccine and booster regimens. 


Lastly, Los Rios is committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment for all students and employees. We expect that those who opt to wear masks, regardless of the reason, will be treated with dignity and kindness. None of us can fully understand what our colleagues’ or classmates’ family health dynamics are, and we will respect those individuals’ choices without judgment or derision.


We continue to work to keep our colleges safe for our students and employees.

Transgender Day of Remembrance

Transgender Day of Remembrance is an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of the transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence. Transgender Day of Remembrance was started in 1999 by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. The vigil commemorated all the transgender people lost to violence since Rita Hester's death, and began an important tradition that has become the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. Visit the GLAAD website for more information.
