Update From Katie Glass, Executive Director of Marketing and Public Information Officer – Dec 1, 2020

Good afternoon,

In response to the continued management of COVID-19 at Southwest Tech, temperature screenings will be performed for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors upon entering Southwest Tech’s facilities. Temperature screenings have been embedded into Southwest Tech’s Return to Campus Plan, which has been in place in all campus facilities, including outreach centers, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The campus community may experience a line or queue at entrances, where signage indicates a required temperature screening using an infrared thermometer. The college will station employees and security to take temperatures. If we screen you with a temperature greater than 100.4º F, you will be asked to return home without entering the Southwest Tech property. Students, faculty, and staff will then follow the plan to notify campus officials. 

For employees, contact one of the Human Resources staff:

For students, notify one of the Student Notification Team members:

  • Dan Imhoff, Director of Facilities, Safety, and Security, Email Dan 608.822.2401
  • Danielle Seippel, Registrar, Email Danielle 608.822.2317
  • Brian Kitelinger, Safety Director, Email Brian 608.822.2376

The revised Phase III of the Southwest Tech Return to Campus Plan will help identify and prevent potential COVID-19 illnesses. “Temperature screenings provide an additional layer of safety in helping prevent community spread,” said Jason S. Wood, President of Southwest Wisconsin Technical College. “At Southwest Tech, we want to do everything we can to create a safe environment for excellent education to continue to be delivered in a face-to-face format.” If you have any questions, please send them to Email the COVID-19 Team
