WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - MSU Texas has released an updated academic calendar removing Spring Break for the 2020-21 school year.

The break was supposed to run from March 13 to March 21, with classes resuming on March 22, but instead classes will continue to run through the week.

The end of the semester is now shifted up by one week.

Classes are now scheduled to end on April 23 and final exams are set to begin on April 24.

MSU Texas' statement can be found below:

Dear Campus Community,

As we continue to make necessary adjustments to plans for in-person operations in the environment of the pandemic, we asked for input from the campus community regarding the spring semester. Following that input, we have made the decision to eliminate Spring Break from the calendar for the Spring 2021 semester. We will begin on January 11 as planned and end on May 1. A short holiday break from April 1-4 remains on the calendar to provide some rest during the semester. We believe this action will minimize travel and movement of the campus population and aid in maintaining a safer campus environment.

The scheduled employee holiday for Friday, March 19, will be moved to Friday, April 2, to coincide with the student holiday break.

We express our appreciation to all MSU faculty, staff, and students for your efforts to safeguard our ability to maintain in-person instruction.
