Louisburg College announces reopening schedule
Louisburg College will officially resume classes on Tuesday, September 18 after the outer-band of Hurricane Florence skirted the area, causing no significant impact or damages to campus. Classes are cancelled on Monday, September 17 in order to allow time for students who traveled away from campus prior to the weather event to return safely to Louisburg.
Employees are asked to report to work on Monday, September 17 at their normal times. Louisburg College residence halls will officially re-open at 9 a.m. on Monday, September 17. However, students may return to campus sooner as their schedules allow. Campus Dining will resume normal meal services and hours on Monday. “We extend our deepest, heart-felt prayers to the victims and their families, as well as the other residents impacted and hit hardest by Hurricane Florence,” says Dr. Gary Brown, President of Louisburg College. “We want all the members of the Louisburg College Family to return to campus safely.”
Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to travel back to campus with caution as there is likely debris and standing water in some areas. All members of the Louisburg College family are encouraged to review weather and road conditions and make well-informed, safe choices about travel.
In recognition that some students may not be able to safely return to campus by Tuesday, the College administration has asked faculty to be considerate of students' individual situations and appropriately flexible regarding class attendance and makeup work. We ask students to contact Karen Gupton in Louisburg College’s Student Life office at firstname.lastname@example.org; or, (919)-497-3247. We ask employees to contact their supervisors.
As always, students and employees can continue to monitor their Louisburg College inboxes, Louisburg College Homepage, LC Alerts, and social media feeds (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) for information concerning the College’s schedule. Those students, parents and employees who may not have access to the internet can contact the College directly by calling 919-496-2521.
The College has remained in close communication with local emergency management officials, as well as the National Weather Service, to continually evaluate Hurricane Florence’s effects. College officials are continuing to monitor the situation and will update the campus community with any changes.
