Flood forces move of Northeast Community College classes, offices in South Sioux


NORFOLK, Neb. – Classes at Northeast Community College in South Sioux City, scheduled to begin Monday, June 6, have been moved because of flood threats.

About 30 Northeast classes at the College Center have been moved to either the South Sioux City Middle School, 3625 G Street, or Homer High School, 212 South 3rd Street. .  All distance learning classes scheduled to originate at the College Center will now be offered at Homer High School.

All College Center offices will be relocated, effective Monday, June 6, at 8 a.m., to the Cardinal Center in the South Sioux City Public Library, 21st and Dakota Avenue.

“Our staff began calling all students and faculty  late Wednesday to inform them of the class move and encourage them to purchase their textbooks at the College Center before Friday if possible,” said John Blaylock, Northeast Vice-President of Educational Services.

“This, like every other facet of dealing with this flood, has been a huge undertaking,” Blaylock said.  “We are extremely grateful for the great generosity of our friends in the South Sioux City and Homer School Systems.  Without their help and hospitality, we would be looking at major class disruption at our College Center.”
