Dear Tech Family,
Good Friday morning.
I hope everyone has time to enjoy the weekend coming up. Take some time to rest and relax, and maybe join us to watch the Bulldogs take on Houston Baptist at 6 p.m. Saturday in The Joe.
We will continue to offer free COVID-19 testing next week in Argent Pavilion. If you have received test results that reveal your testing was inconclusive, I encourage you to re-take the test next week. We will have testing available through Oct. 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each weekday. I also encourage you to go get tested even if you show no symptoms.
Remember that registering ahead of time will help speed things along. Register online at https://www.doineedacovid19test.com/Ruston_LA_1462.html and print your testing voucher ahead of time.

This application period will end Sept. 30, so get started on your application today. For more information on the CARES Act at Tech, visit latech.edu/CARES-Act.
TOPS rules suspended
Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards issued a proclamation last week that will suspend certain requirements that high school students and graduates must meet in order to achieve TOPS eligibility.
For 2020 high school graduates, the proclamation removes the Sept. 30 deadline by which students had to achieve a qualifying score on the ACT or SAT for TOPS purposes. The deadline is suspended whether the student lives in a parish affected by Hurricane Laura or their test site was closed due to actions taken to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. A student’s TOPS eligibility will be re-evaluated if a new ACT score is received.
For current high school students who live in a parish severely impacted by Hurricane Laura and have enrolled at a school in another state, the proclamation suspends the requirement that a student must live in Louisiana and complete their last four semesters of high school in the state. For students who are now being homeschooled, the proclamation suspends the requirement that a student must begin a home study program no later than the end of their 10th-grade year.
The parishes covered in this proclamation are Acadia, Allen, Beauregard, Caddo, Calcasieu, Cameron, Grant, Jackson, Jefferson Davis, LaSalle, Lincoln, Morehouse, Natchitoches, Ouachita, Rapides, Sabine, St. Landry, Union, Vermilion, Vernon, and Winn.
For more information on the proclamation, you can visit LOFSA’s FAQ site.
Have a great weekend!
