The following message is sent on behalf of Dr. Jerry L. Buckley.
To: Students, Faculty, Staff, K12 Education Partners, and Community Members-
As you have read in previous correspondence, beginning Monday, March 16 through Monday, April 27, 2020, Reedley College will transition and offer most of its face-to-face classes to alternate formats while continuing to maintain services to students. The College's goal is to continue both instruction and student services during this time while limiting the number of people on campus to ensure the safety and protection of all.
It is important to know that Student Services is in the process of creating detailed plans to address the support needs of our students during the transition to alternate forms of course delivery. Deans, Directors, and Faculty and Staff leaders are working together on this transition and in developing high quality remote and alternate forms of services to meet the needs of our student population.
From March 16 through April 27, 2020, student services will be provided on campus and in alternate delivery methods unless circumstances related to the coronavirus situation dictate otherwise.
Guidance for Faculty and Staff
In order to provide continuity of student services, faculty and staff are encouraged to continue to work with your Dean, Director and/or faculty leaders to develop alternate methods of services appropriate to your department.
Fear and anxiety understandably can arise during public health emergencies such as the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and lead to stressful times for people and communities. As a result, social stigma towards others but we can guard against this by practicing effective support while meeting the challenge with compassion, knowledge and resolve. For additional information on how to combat social stigma, please see the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention webpage - https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/related-stigma.html
Please continue to monitor District and College websites, and College social media for further developments and information.
