Thursday, March 12 C-SC President Kelly Thompson announced the extension of spring break and online-only instruction beginning March 23 as a response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In her statement, Thompson says:
“The health and safety of everyone on the Culver-Stockton campus is our main priority. Maintaining that standard is even more important at this time with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. C-SC has been, and will continue to work closely with the Lewis County Health Department.
Culver-Stockton College will extend spring break for one week, March 16-20, in an effort to limit the possibility of exposure to the coronavirus to the campus and Canton community. At this time, there are no reported cases of coronavirus on the C-SC campus or in the surrounding region. This additional week will give College leadership and academic departments the opportunity to thoughtfully consider all options for finishing the semester through alternative methods. All classes will begin Monday, March 23 via online learning. Residential students have the option of returning to campus or staying home.
Culver-Stockton offices will remain open and faculty will be instructed by their departments on how to proceed during the week.
At this time, there is no reason for concern among students, parents, faculty, staff and visitors. A coronavirus task force is monitoring the situation and communicating frequently. C-SC is ready to implement a plan if the need arises.
Please check back on our website’s COVID-19 resource page, culver.edu/covid-19 for further updates. All students will be receiving additional information via your campus email address.”
