COVID-19 Update

Campus Memo Banner

Updated 3/19/2020

Bossier Parish Community College continues to monitor developments in the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.  While there are currently no confirmed cases connected to BPCC, we recognize the situation is escalating and we continue to make decisions that promote the health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty by preventing the spread of COVID-19 within our community. 

Though the BPCC campus is closed, work proceeds to ensure that we continue to deliver on the promise of education and training that supports the citizens of Northwest Louisiana.  While we are blessed with a beautiful campus and great facilities, it is our people and our students that define BPCC and it is #TheBPCCWay that captures our commitment to world class service to students and to one another.

Beginning March 23, BPCC will move all instruction and student communication online.  BPCC faculty and staff have been hard at work to make this transition to distance learning and are prepared to use a variety of strategies to ensure that our students can complete their courses.  Information for specific courses and services will be available in CANVAS. 

An emergency telecommuting policy was approved and implemented March 18 to provide structure to our new remote reality.  Within the context of this new reality, BPCC staff are committed to providing all the necessary support services to students and employees to promote student achievement and continuity of operations.

Reminders:

  • All College events are canceled until further notice.
  • All BPCC travel is canceled until further notice.
  • Additional updates will continue to be provided via email and posted to the BPCC webpage for Coronavirus information.

You can help prevent the spread of illness and reduce the impact on our community by taking common precautions:

  • Practice social distancing by avoiding crowded areas and keeping 6 feet of distance from others and gathering in groups of no more than 10 people.
  • Wash your hands frequently, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth with tissue or your elbow when coughing or sneezing.
  • Stay home if exhibiting respiratory symptoms such as a cough, difficulty breathing, or fever until you are fever-free for 24 hours without the aid of medication. Contact your healthcare provider.
