Dear Tech Family,
Good Thursday morning.
My update today will be brief, as I know everyone is watching as Hurricane Laura travels through the state. The storm made landfall last night near Cameron as a Category 4/5 hurricane. As I write this, it is still dark and we aren’t able to see the full extent of the damage across Louisiana.
I ask that you keep our sister institutions to the south in your thoughts today. Though all ULS members schools are closed and many students have been sent home, our colleagues who have stayed behind to monitor conditions and begin cleanup need our support. We well know that weather can wreak havoc on a college campus and that the encouragement from our sister institutions can make a difference.
Campus is closed today in anticipation of the probable severe weather. We also dismissed AE Phillips Lab School today, following about a week of classes for those students and teachers. Please stay mindful as the storm moves through our area. We anticipate that we’ll see more rain and winds, and tornadoes and power outages are a strong possibility.
If you venture out, please remain careful to avoid the high water and flooding that often accompany these types of storms.
Please remember that hurricanes do not diminish the presence of COVID-19. Don’t let up your guard with masking and distancing as you interact with others.
We will update you today if conditions change in the area. Remember to stay home, keep your devices charged, and stay safe.
