Updates and Information

Dear Students,

Congratulations - you made it through Spring Semester 2020!!  

What a semester it has been. You have worked hard and overcome many challenges brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. I know it has not been easy. I am so proud of each and every one of you for being persistent and not giving up on your educational goals. You are indeed Cannoneer strong!

Many of you will be leaving Jefferson after this semester, transferring to another College, starting a new job, or perhaps joining the military. For others, I sincerely hope your plans include continuing your education and that we will see you back at Jefferson Community College.  Continuing your education is important and while this pandemic has turned life seemingly upside down, I know that you will look back on this time and be proud of how you persevered, kept your eyes on the prize and stayed on track to complete your College degree. 

For now, take a well-deserved break, pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself on a job well done.  Most importantly, stay well.

Dear Students,

Here we are on Friday, May 1 and with just two weeks left in the semester, you are truly in the home stretch.  I know how hard you have worked this semester – keep up the good work!  You have overcome many challenges this semester, and I realize that for many this has not been easy.

I encourage you to continue the momentum and stay academically strong over the summer months. If you are not entirely comfortable with distance and online learning, taking even just one class this summer can help you adapt and become a stronger online learner while keeping your degree on track. Continuing your education is important and while this pandemic has turned life seemingly upside down, think of how proud of you will be to know you persevered, kept your eyes on the prize and completed your degree.  

Your faculty advisors are available by phone to speak with you regarding your summer and fall schedules, transfer plans, change of major inquiries, and other questions you may have. Or, call 315-786-2437 or email advising@sunyjefferson.edu to make an appointment with an educational planner. 

I repeat the following information often, but it is well worth doing so: if you are feeling stressed, anxious or uncertain, please take advantage of resources we have available to help.  Your feelings are natural, and you are not alone.  The Health & Wellness Center on campus is open for both physical health exams and personal counseling. You can make a same day appointment by calling 315-786-1045. There is also a New York State hotline that you can call, 1-844-863-9314, to schedule a free appointment with a mental health professional.

In addition, we expect to reach out to students soon with information about how to apply for Federal CARES Act funding through the College. The CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund-IHE/Student Aid allows us to provide emergency financial aid grants to students whose lives have been disrupted and who are struggling to make ends meet financially.

Please continue to check www.sunyjefferson.edu/coronavirus regularly. It is your best source for the most up-to-date information and answers to the most frequently asked questions.  

Take some time to enjoy the sunshine expected for this weekend. Stay home, stay connected, stay on track and be well!

Dear students,

I hope this note finds you healthy and well. I know you have all been working extra hard since returning to classes after Spring Break. For many, your classes resumed in a completely different format. It has undoubtedly been a challenge for many. Give yourself a pat on the back for adapting as best as you can. By now, you should have received at least one, if not multiple, Well-Care phone calls or messages. Our faculty and staff want to do all they can to help you through this semester, and I hope you are receptive to these phone calls and are genuinely honest in your responses.

Please don’t forget that we have great resources available to help you through these last three weeks – tutoring online, personal well-being services at the Health & Wellness Center, technology support, and much more.  Furthermore, on Saturday, April 25, the College’s food pantry will be available to students from 12:00pm – 2:00pm for drive-thru pick up of food and personal hygiene items. To schedule an appointment, please email foodpantry@sunyjefferson.edu.

With less than four weeks remaining in this semester, you are probably thinking about what comes next. I sincerely hope your plans include continuing your education. Given the uncertainty around COVID-19 and social distancing guidance, we have decided to move all Summer Session classes to a remote learning format. Classes originally planned to be in-person will be adapted to suit the learning needs of students. Summer is a great time to take a class or two that allows you to keep your degree on track, make up a missed class or perhaps even get ahead on your degree.  You can register for Summer today. We are currently planning to resume in-person classes for the Fall semester here on campus, on Fort Drum and at the Lewis County Education Center. There is no better time than the present to plan for the future, and you can register now for Fall classes to ensure you get the classes you want at the times that you need.

I hope this information helps you plan for the months ahead. I choose to be hopeful and excited that I will see everyone – students, staff and faculty - back on campus for the Fall semester.

Please continue to check www.sunyjefferson.edu/coronavirus regularly. It is your best source for the _

You are in the home stretch.  Stay home, stay connected, stay on track and be well!

Students,

As you are likely aware, Jefferson’s spring commencement ceremony is scheduled for Friday, May 15, 2020.  Public gathering restrictions from the Department of Health relating to the coronavirus pandemic have made it necessary to change how your commencement ceremony must be planned.  While this is an extraordinary and challenging time in our history, your achievement of earning your college degree is deserving of pomp and circumstance! I am excited to share that Jefferson will hold a virtual commencement ceremony on our website on May 15 for all to view from the safety of your homes.

Please be on the lookout for an email from marketing@sunyjefferson.edu with instructions on securing your regalia. To be individually recognized at the virtual ceremony, we are asking you to submit a photo of yourself in your cap and gown.  You are welcome to include your family or other special guests in your photo. You are also encouraged to include a brief message or a favorite quote. I hope you will choose to participate in this unique ceremony.

Commencement is the highlight of each academic year for me, and I certainly understand your disappointment that we cannot hold a traditional ceremony. Please remember, however, the true achievement is the completion of your college degree. We will do everything possible to make our virtual ceremony a special celebration of your accomplishments. Additionally, when it becomes safe to do so, we plan to host a luncheon for spring and summer graduates.

I look forward to celebrating with you virtually and in person.   

Be well.

Students,

I want to take a few moments to say how proud I am of all of you for making the transition to remote learning over the last week. I am sure that for many of you it was not easy, while for others it was a mostly seamless transition.

You should take a few moments to give yourself a much-deserved pat on the back!

Students,

Welcome back to our virtual campus.  I realize what a huge adjustment this is for all of us.  With perseverance and heart, we will meet these challenges head on and come out with greater experience and a sense of accomplishment.

We are all in uncharted waters, therefore the College’s faculty, staff and administration will do everything in its power to assist you in meeting your education goals. I have attached two documents that will hopefully assist you in developing a game plan that works for you.  One document contains information about adjusting your study habits for this unique semester. The second will be especially helpful for students who are also parents balancing study with family time.

Your instructors are your first source of contact. If you are running into problems, do not be afraid to reach out to them.

I hope you will find the attached information helpful.  My goal is that these documents provide at least one, and hopefully several, suggestions that will assist you this semester.

It’s a pleasure to serve as your Academic Vice President.

Best Regards,

Tom Finch
Vice President for Academic Affairs

Students,

As spring break draws to a close and you get ready to resume classes on Monday, I want to share this welcome back message from your Jefferson Community College family. We are all excited to "see" you on Monday!
 
Enjoy your weekend and be well,

Jefferson Community College

Students,

As we approach the end of Spring Break, I want to tell you how excited we are for you to return – virtually – to campus on March 30th. Like you, the vast majority of staff and faculty are away from campus, working from home as College offices remain closed to the public. Let me assure you – we are ready to resume the spring semester! Faculty are prepared to teach classes in means other than face-to-face, academic support services are being shifted online, and while we may not be physically in our campus offices, Jefferson’s staff and faculty are available for you via phone, via email and in many cases, online.

Please review the information below which will help you prepare now for the start of classes on Monday.

Computers and internet access

  • We have identified several areas on our campus where WiFi is accessible from designated parking spaces (see map at end of this email). Those accessing campus WiFi from the comfort of their vehicles must maintain social distancing from other students. Campus security will be on site to ensure social distancing.
  • Laptops are available to borrow for short-term access to campus WiFi.  Students may temporarily sign out and return laptops between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on Monday – Friday, by calling 315-786-2472. Laptop delivery to your vehicle will be available in Lot A.
  • There are lots of businesses in our community that offer free public WiFi that extends into exterior spaces. To find a location near you, simply google “public WiFi near me”.
  • If you do not have a computer or reliable internet at home, please contact your instructor or faculty advisor via email as soon as possible.

Academic support services

  • Tutoring: The College will offer tutoring support during the spring semester via Blackboard. Beginning March 30, students can sign up for tutoring support at  www.sunyjefferson.edu/tutoring.
  • Accommodations: Students who previously elected not to register their disability with the Accommodative Services Office (ASO) and want to now, and students who need to adjust their current accommodation due to change in class format, may do so by contacting the ASO at (315) 786-2288 or thoistion@sunyjefferson.edu.
  • Library Resources: Although the College library is closed to foot traffic, staff are available to assist students with research and accessing online resources. Students can contact the library at library@sunyjefferson.edu.

Health and wellness

The Health & Wellness Center on campus, which is operated by the North Country Family Health Center, is open its regular hours, Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and offers physical and mental health services. Please call ahead for appointments, (315) 786-1042.

In addition, Governor Cuomo announced yesterday that New Yorkers can call the NYS hotline at 1-844-863-9314 to schedule a free appointment with a mental health professional.


Bookstore
The campus bookstore is closed, however textbooks and academic supplies can be ordered online and by calling (315) 786-2260. Textbooks and academic supplies will be shipped for free to students.

Student employment
Jefferson values the contributions of our student employees and recognizes the hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In light of the unexpected nature of the recent campus closure, the College will pay impacted student employees on April 2, 2020 based upon the average hours worked over the previous two payroll periods.  You do not need to submit a timesheet if you have not worked; the payroll office will do it for you.

Credits and refunds
The College will soon begin working with returning students and seniors to determine the amount of credits and refunds for housing, meals and fees they won’t be using for the remainder of this semester.

Student records and financial aid
For assistance with any questions related to financial aid and student records, please check into our new virtual kiosk for a return call from an enrollment services specialist.

Registration for fall classes
Current students can begin registering for fall and winter classes on March 31st.  The full schedule is available online and a PIN is not required. Students should contact their faculty advisor (contact information on SOAR) with questions about their schedules.  Note: It’s not too late to register for a late session class that begins on March 30th.

Please continue to monitor your College email and www.sunyjefferson.edu for further updates.  In addition, your instructors have begun posting information in Blackboard.

Let me close by saying we know this is a lot of change from where we all were a few short weeks ago. We would love nothing more than to welcome all students back to campus in person, to fully engage in hands-on learning, and to socialize with friends and enjoy campus events. Unfortunately, our current situation does not allow that. However, we must remember that social distancing doesn’t mean isolation. We must maintain our personal connections through alternate means of communication. We look forward to the day we can all return to an active and bustling campus.  For now, we march on.  

Be brave in trying new things in these unprecedented times, be confident in your abilities to successfully complete this semester, trust in our ability to assist you in helping you reach your goals and be well!

 Students,

I am writing to give you another brief update on what is happening at Jefferson Community College amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.  New information and guidance from state and federal officials is forthcoming on a daily basis.  As you may have heard, Jefferson County (not the College) now has its first confirmed case of COVID-I9.

As of today, SUNY is urging all students system-wide to remain home after Spring Break. Residence hall students who are still on campus have been asked to return home if they are able to do so safely and without hardship. Students with extenuating circumstances will be permitted to remain in East Hall and dining services will be available with modified hours of operation. 

We had hoped that when classes resumed on March 30th, that we would have some academic support services – such as computer labs and library resources – open in a modified capacity to accommodate social distancing, but at this point we believe these are no longer viable options.  Rest assured, our faculty and staff are hard at work developing alternative means to provide academic and technological support to you for the remainder of the spring semester.  Over the next ten days, we will be providing additional information on how to access these resources when classes resume on March 30th.  Please continue to monitor your College email and the College’s website.  

I am sure that you, like us here at the College, are disappointed, but recognize how important it is for us to take these extreme precautions to help “flatten the curve” and reduce the spread of COVID-19.  These are unprecedented times for our entire country, but we remain committed to your health, safety and academic pursuits.

Be safe and be well,

Ty A. Stone, PhD

Jefferson Community College

Dear Students,

I want to provide an update on coronavirus planning at Jefferson Community College and specifically changes that pertain to your studies here on campus.

You received a Jefferson Alert message yesterday letting you know our College offices are closed to the public and your Spring Break is beginning early.  We are taking these steps to adhere to Department of Health and Centers for Disease (CDC) recommendations to reduce population density and support social distancing.  At this time, we are not aware of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Jefferson County.  In addition:

  • College offices, including the library, are closed to public foot traffic until March 30th. College staff remain available by phone. Please visit our online directory for up-to-date College contact information: sunyjefferson.edu/directory.  We ask for your patience as faculty and staff respond to a high volume of phone calls, emails and messages. Also, check our website often as the answers to your questions may be contained on www.sunyjefferson.edu/coronavirus.
  • The Residence Hall remains open, however guest access is restricted.  Residence hall students will receive an email from Vice President Corey Campbell and the Office of Residence Life and Housing with specific details.
  • We have received guidance from SUNY on our residence hall students, and will be communicating more in the coming days about credits/refunds relating to room and board.
  • Dining services are available with modified hours. Hours of operation will be posted on the College’s website.
  • The Bookstore is closed, however textbooks and academic supplies can be ordered online anytime and over the phone (315-786-2260) between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Textbooks and academic supplies will be shipped for free to students.
  • The Fitness Center on campus is closed indefinitely.
  • The Health & Wellness Center, which is operated by the North Country Family Health Center, is open its regular hours, Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.  Please call ahead for appointments, 315-786-1042.
  • Spectrum is offering free broadband and Wi-Fi internet access to impacted students. Beginning March 16, Spectrum will make its services available for free for 60 days to households with college and/or K-12 students who don’t already have internet through the company. Installation fees will be waived for new student households. To enroll in the program, call 1-844-488-8395.
  • Faculty continue their work to prepare for your classes to continue via distance learning and other modalities and instructors will be communicating further information to you before March 30th.
  • For students who need access to supplies from our on-campus Food Pantry, we can offer free delivery within Jefferson and Lewis counties of a bag of assorted food and hygiene supplies. This is available Monday, March 16th through Wednesday, March 18th WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.  Please email foodpantry@sunyjefferson.edu to inquire.
  • Finally, the Centers for Disease Control has a great deal of information about COVID-19 available on its website.  In particular, the CDC document regarding risk assessment is a very beneficial read and may provide some reassurance about our daily interactions on and off campus.  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/risk-assessment.html

I am impressed and humbled by how the campus community has come together to address this truly unprecedented situation and support our students. We will continue to work as a team to address the challenges ahead. We appreciate your patience, understanding and kindness to one another as we all move through uncharted territory.

Please continue to monitor your College email and the College’s website, www.sunyjefferson.edu/coronavirus for continued updates.

Again, be well and be safe.

Coronavirus (COV-ID 19) Update: March 12, 2020

Students,

I just wanted to take a few moments to give you some information regarding the College's response to the coronavirus pandemic. Last week, I sent you all a message to assure you that we were working to reduce exposure by providing more cleaning supplies and antibacterial stations across the campus. We believe this has been very effective in reducing the spread of illness.

Yesterday, Governor Cuomo announced that all SUNY colleges were directed to reduce face-to­ face instruction by March 19, 2020. In preparation for this shift, the College has decided to extend your Spring Break a few days, so spring break will start on Thursday, March 19 --one week from today. Our approach will be to offer distance learning options that may include email, Blackboard, or the good ole U.S. Postal Service. Your faculty will provide more specific information for how your classes will proceed before the end of Spring Break on March 30.

Although it may be difficult, I urge you to stay calm and confident during this time. The College has a number of resources available for your health and wellbeing. More information about those resources can be found at https://www.sunyjefferson.edu/student-life/health-wellness/.  Also, please know that we have a College task force developing the appropriate plans and protocols to ensure you can continue your studies in a safe and effective manner.

We will continue to communicate information as we learn more. Stay tuned to the student portal, your email, and our website to keep yourself informed. 

Be well.

Ty A. Stone, PhD
President
Jefferson Community College

Jefferson Community College students,

I am sure many of you have heard the Governor’s message today regarding the state’s response to the coronavirus epidemic. I want to assure you that our goal is to ensure that you all can continue on your educational journeys.

We are working with SUNY leadership and our plans for distance learning are evolving, so you are urged to monitor your email and portal messages for more information.

What is important for you to know now:

  • Currently, there are no known cases of COVID-19 in Jefferson or Lewis counties.
  • Jefferson Community College IS NOT CLOSED. Please continue to adhere to your scheduled classes through Wednesday, March 18.
  • Spring Break for students will begin early on Thursday, March 19, 2020.
  • Classes will resume on Monday, March 30, 2020.  More details to follow.

I understand you must have many questions. I will send a status update to the campus community on Thursday and will continue to provide updates on a regular basis. 

As always, we remain committed to your well-being.

Be well…

Jefferson Students,

As you are surely aware, there has been much concern regarding both Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the flu here in in the United States.  I have been meeting with the College’s administration and we are conferring regularly with SUNY and the Department of Health so we have the most up-to-date guidance. The coronavirus is a developing story, and we are doing all we can to stay on top of it.  A link on our homepage to SUNY’s Health Alert contains the most current information from the Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

What we know now is the best way to STAY HEALTHY and avoid the flu, colds and other illnesses, is to stop the spread of germs by practicing some simple precautions:

  • Wash your hands OFTEN with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds each time
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow

Rest assured, the College is ramping up its efforts to keep the spread of illness to a minimum. Our facilities department is setting up additional stations around campus and in classrooms with antibacterial hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes. Our cleaning staff will be paying close attention to door handles, railings and buttons, and we are deploying our sanitizing fogger twice per week now instead of once.

If you are sick – you should stay home. To maintain your studies, you must contact your faculty to find out how best to keep up with coursework, classroom lectures and labs, so you don’t fall behind. 

If you feel ill - you should call your doctor or one of our many local urgent care centers. Beginning Monday, March 9th, the Health & Wellness Center on campus will reopen as a North Country Family Health Center site and you can call 315-786-1042 for same-day appointments.

Regarding coronavirus specifically, the risk in New York State remains low. If you have been in China/Italy/Iran/South Korea/Japan or think you have been in close contact with someone with confirmed COVID-19 AND you develop symptoms, call your local healthcare provider or urgent care center before visiting. Symptoms of coronavirus include mild to severe respiratory illness. For more specific information, visit www.cdc.gov/covid19 or call the DOH toll-free Hotline at 1-888-364-3065.

Take good care of yourself and feel free to reach out to Tom Finch, Vice President for Academic Affairs, at 315-786-2237 with any questions or concerns.
