Rogers State University today implemented a series of action plans intended to minimize the effects of the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic at its campuses in Claremore, Pryor and Bartlesville.
“The health and safety of our students and employees is our paramount concern,” RSU President Larry Rice, said. “The plans we are implementing today are intended to minimize the risk of exposure and spread of the virus.”
Actions taken include extending spring break for students only by one week, March 23-27. Faculty and staff will report to work as scheduled and the campus will remain open. Students are encouraged to stay home but all campus services will be available.
In addition, RSU will move to remote instruction for a minimum of one week, March 30 through April 3. Students will be informed of instructional options through their RSU email accounts.
Rice said administrators will continue to monitor the situation and respond accordingly. He encouraged students and employees to monitor their email for operational updates and protocols for managing potential exposure to the virus.
