April 3, 2020

Greetings,


I hope everyone is managing through the new normal of social distancing.  This first week following spring break is always the start of the march toward the end of the semester.  I know everyone is working very hard to make the online instruction move work, and I appreciate your dedication and commitment.  We will have a solution for those who need clinical or shop hours to complete their courses in the near future.


I wanted to inform everyone that we will postpone our Graduation Ceremony to a time to be determined later in the summer.  We will obviously wait until health care officials deem it safe to have large group gatherings.  I am sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause you, but it is unavoidable at this time.  


The college experience will continue and I urge all of our students to make their plans to enroll in summer courses and fall courses.  The registration process is open online and you can begin to make your plans and enroll.  Faculty advisers are available online and the financial aid office is also operating online.  Social media broadcasts of these enrollment opportunities are forthcoming and the various schedules are online for your review.  We look forward to seeing everyone in the coming semesters.  


Please abide by the social distancing recommendations.  The campus remains closed and only those staff members who are engaged in emergency operations should be on campus during this time.  We want you all to stay safe and healthy as we meet this challenge together.


Thanks,

Robin Myers
Chancellor





MARCH 29, 2020
Greetings,


I hope this email finds you and your family safe and healthy during these trying times.  As a reminder, we will continue in the internet based instruction mode for the coming weeks.  We will continue to monitor the situation and give everyone plenty of time to prepare if we are able to return to campus this semester.  Beginning Monday, students should begin to participate in online classes as we return from spring break.  Students should strive to spend at least as much time online in each class as you would in the regular seated version.  You are encouraged to follow your weekly class schedule and work each day online to stay current with your coursework.  This will keep you in tune with the course material and well prepared for tests that will be coming in the next few weeks.  


The campus will remain closed for the coming weeks as we abide by the recommended social distancing practices to help fight the spread of the virus.  We are available to assist you in your coursework or other needs.  Reach out to an instructor, contact us on social media or by phone if we can assist you in the learning process as we continue in the online mode.  We are also here to help you as students if you have a family emergency during this time.  We will have a food pantry distribution for any students needing assistance later this week.  We also have limited student emergency funds available if you are in an emergency situation as a result of the virus shutdown.  Please communicate that emergency to one of your instructors, and they will proceed to assist you in securing help.


First and foremost, stay safe and well over the next few weeks.  Abide by the recommendations of public health officials in participating in social distancing.  We will have summer and fall registration available for you starting this coming week and all of the process can be completed online.  We look forward to seeing everyone back on campus soon!


Thanks,


Robin Myers

Pursuant to the latest directive from Governor Hutchinson, I am closing all offices except emergency operations on the campus.  We will ask emergency operations personnel to perform their necessary functions on site, but all other personnel are asked to work remotely.  Please take your work home with you today with plans to work from home until further notice. 


Additionally, public schools will not be in session before April 20th.  We will remain in online-only instruction until that date.


Thanks,

MARCH 16, 2020
Greetings,


Things are moving rapidly as developments concerning the coronavirus change the operations of organizations across our nation.  I wanted to confirm to everyone our operating procedures for the time being.  


Faculty will begin delivering all of the coursework for this semester online beginning tomorrow March 17th.  They will work with their students to overcome the issues associated with moving from a seated course to an online course.  There may also be some clinical hours and laboratory work that will need to be made up at a later date.   Please be patient and understand that none of us have had this experience on this scale before, but we will all get through it working together.  We will address the duration of this online delivery later this week but it will most likely extend beyond the spring break week.  Please make your plans to continue in the online mode beyond that point.  


The College offices will remain open for the time being and operate from 8:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m each day.  There will not be any activities in the evening and all buildings will close at 5:00 p.m.  Students may continue to use the library to assist them in gaining access to the Internet for coursework or research.  Tutoring services will be available, and more information will be sent to students concerning accessing those services online, in a separate communication.  The parking lots behind Integrity Hall will be available for students to utilize for access to the Internet connection if you decide to work from your vehicle.


All gatherings exceeding 50 people have been cancelled for the next 60 days as recommended by the Center for Disease Control.  All events in the Vada Sheid Community Development Center have been cancelled for this period of time.  


It is my hope that we will be back to normal in the near future.  In the meantime, we will all continue to support each other and strive to serve our students with these changes outlined above.  I again ask you each to move forward with caution, courtesy, and courage as we all strive to get through this crisis together.


Thanks,

Greetings,


We are continuing to monitor the developments associated with the Corona Virus outbreak. It is my hope that we can continue to operate as usual through the spring break week. We will make an assessment each day based on the situation at that time. I appreciate every one's patience and cooperation as we navigate this unprecedented event.


I am asking that all college related out-of-town travel for both staff and students be cancelled through April 9th. I am also asking that we limit meetings on campus to groups of less than 100 during this same period. These measures will help in protecting the campus by limiting the possibility of spreading the virus.


As always, I encourage each of you to practice the recommended regular hand washing and courteous measures of covering your cough or sneeze. I also ask that each student and staff member use their discretion and not come to campus if they have any flu-like symptoms. These activities will do more to combat this virus than almost anything else we can do. As a reminder, we have a number of corona virus response publications on the alert tab of our website. These may be helpful in providing you with more information about minimizing your risk of contracting the virus.


We will all get through this event through the exercise of caution, courtesy, and courage. Thank you and have a safe and happy weekend!


Robin Myers,
Chancellor

Out of an abundance of caution, we regret that we must once again reschedule The Choir of Man. We are working with the cast and crew to make plans to have them back in the fall. All tickets will be honored for the return visit. We are deeply sorry for this inconvenience. Our main concern is the safety and health of our community.

Greetings Staff and Students,


Today we have been informed of a presumptive case of COVID-19 reported in the Pine Bluff area. Students from Southeast Arkansas Community College (SEARK) Respiratory Care Program came into contact with the "infected" individual while working a clinical rotation at the local hospital. As a result, SEARK has closed and is working through the situation. This is an example to all of us for the need to be prepared and to be cautious as we confront this health threat.


We are closely monitoring the situation and will continue to keep the campus community informed of any known developments in our area. We have developed a plan for the continuation of the spring semester to be conducted remotely from campus if required. We are hopeful that this will not be necessary but want everyone to be aware of that possibility.


I continue to ask everyone to exercise personal responsibility for observing appropriate recommendations for hand washing and limiting others to exposure should you have any flu-like symptoms. Allowances for absenteeism will be made for any student or staff exhibiting those symptoms during this critical time.


Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this time. The ability to address this concern with caution and calmness will allow us all to navigate this situation.


Thanks,


Robin Myers,
Chancellor
