We are fortunate that Bossier Parish Community College began to take steps early to prepare for the “Stay at Home Order” issued by Governor John Bel Edwards today. Consequently, we are further along in our efforts to transition to online instruction and tele-work for staff and administrators. The Governor’s Executive Order is effective beginning 5:00pm, Monday, March 23 and will extend to April 13 unless otherwise extended. The Order directs all individuals living in the State of Louisiana to stay home except as needed to maintain continuity of operation of the critical infrastructure sector.
BPCC’s efforts to preserve continuity of instruction and our operational plans are in-line with requirements of the Governor’s Executive Order. The BPCC campus will remain closed to the public but open for online instruction and the remote delivery of support services. In order to support the operational plan, limited essential personnel will report to the Campus on an as-necessary basis to support the security and business-critical functions of the College. The limited number of essential employees who report to work on campus must adhere to recommended hygiene etiquette and social distancing as we have been consistently communicating.
The Executive Council is meeting regularly via Zoom, and updates will be released to faculty, staff, and students as appropriate. The College’s website continues to be the best single source for all BPCC-related COVID-19 updates. Please visit and browse the site regularly. The BPCC Marketing and Public Relations Team is also continuously posting new information to our social media platforms and updating frequently asked questions. If, after reviewing the resources available online, you have unanswered questions, please call 318-678-6000 to be directed to various offices and services that remain available to assist you. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org and submit a question that will be routed to the appropriate individual.
The new direction from the Governor is necessary to stop the spread of this virus and I encourage the entire BPCC family to follow this order. I continue to be proud of you all for your continued commitment to serving our students. While at home in the days ahead, stay connected virtually with our students and with one another. We will get through this together. Thank you for exemplifying #TheBPCCWay!
