Due to ongoing poor air quality, Modesto Junior College will remain closed through Sunday, November 25. All classes and extracurricular activities on campus are cancelled during this time. MJC will reopen on Monday, November 26.

Unfortunately, this pertains to the Turkey Trot scheduled to be on Thanksgiving morning. We are postponing the race to Saturday, December 15th.
For those who have already signed up, we will send an email to you shortly.
We really appreciate your understanding and hope to see you December 15th.

Thank you to all those who are helping to fight the California Fires especially to the firefighters out there during this time. We are keeping those affected by the California Fires in our thoughts during this difficult time.
