THATCHER – In a posting to social media Tuesday, Eastern Arizona College President Todd Haynie announced that all “courses are moved to a remote environment” when the semester resumes Monday, March 30.

“I also want to thank all of our students for your patience, and assure you that we are doing everything possible to provide you with the quality courses that will help you succeed with your educational pursuits,” he said.

Instructors are reaching out to students to go over the remote class structure. Haynie said the school’s library and computer labs will remain open to students; however, there are limits on the number of students able to access those services at any time, given social distancing limitations.

“If you are home for spring break, please stay home,” Haynie said, “but please be prepared to start classes remotely from your permanent residence on March 30. If you live on campus, but are not on campus at this point, please do not return to collect your belongings until at least April 2. Your belongings are secure.

“If you have traveled to another country during spring break, please do not return to EAC’s campuses until at least 14 days after you returned to this United States. This also goes for any faculty and staff,” he continued. “If you have experienced any COVID-19  symptoms, please do not come to campus. Instead, call your health-care provider.”
