UACCB COVID-19 Update April 6, 2020

Posted Date - 4/6/20


On April 6, 2020, Governor Hutchinson and Secretary Johnny Key announced the extended closure of Arkansas public schools through the end of the 2020 school term. The governor stated the decision is based on public health concerns and that students will continue with alternative methods of instruction (AMI) through the end of the year. With this guidance, the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB) will complete the Spring 2020 semester via remote learning. The last day of classes will be April 28, with final exams scheduled for April 29-May 5. Final grades will be due May 7, 2020.

Students, please be reminded that UACCB will continue to provide tutoring in the Student Success Center, and the Row Johns Library is available to students from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (adhering to the required social distancing and limiting groups of 10 people or fewer). For information regarding other tutoring opportunities, please contact Ms. Deanna Tillery (deanna.tillery@uaccb.edu) or call 870-612-2041. Information regarding tutoring via Microsoft Teams can be found at HERE. You may also contact Ms. Sharon Gage (sharon.gage@uaccb.edu) or at 870-612-2019 if you have questions regarding library resources.

UACCB has extended the last day to drop or withdraw from courses or withdraw completely from the college to April 28, 2020. This extended deadline will allow you additional time to become more comfortable with the remote learning environment.  Contact your academic advisor if you have questions.

UACCB is currently registering students for the summer and fall semesters. Courses offered during both Summer I and Summer II sessions will be offered via remote learning. The Academic Advising Center has appointments available. For information regarding registration, please contact Ms. Comfort Winston (comfort.winston@uaccb.edu) or by calling 870-612-2160. She is more than willing to connect you with an academic advisor.

At UACCB, we understand that during these uncertain times, “business as usual” looks a bit different than before, but together we will get through this. Together we are making a difference. Please continue to practice social distancing, hand washing and limited group gatherings of 10 or fewer people.

As always, UACCB remains student-centered and community-focused. If you have questions, please call 870-612-2000.

All media inquiries should be directed to Hannah Keller Flanery, communications and marketing coordinator, at 870-612-2145 or hannah.keller@uaccb.edu.

Alert Message

Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced Tuesday that he will not renew the statewide mask mandate that expires at midnight tonight; however, school districts, private businesses, and medical facilities may still require patrons to wear masks as a preventative measure against the spread of COVID-19 under the revised guidelines. The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville will maintain mask use and social distancing protocols on campus through the end of the spring semester. During its meeting on Friday, March 19, 2021, the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee discussed the topic of continuing the mask mandate on campus after the statewide mandate expires March 31. Campus constituents, including representatives from the faculty senate, staff senate, Student Government Association and the cabinet were involved in the discussion. It was agreed that continuing to follow mask use and social distancing protocols was in the best interest of the campus community.

 

On Friday, March 26, 2021, the campus reported its fifth straight week of having zero positive self-reported cases of COVID-19 associated with the campus. Our students, faculty, and staff have shown outstanding diligence in wearing face coverings and social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The campus community is asked to continue in its diligence to keep members of campus safe and healthy, not only for the benefit of campus but our community as well.
