Dear SPC Students, Faculty and Staff: 

In response to the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” directive from the Hockley County Judge, South Plains College will close to all employees, visitors, and students beginning tomorrow night (Tuesday, March 31) at midnight.  This closure will be effective for all campuses including Levelland, Plainview, Reese, and Lubbock.  Below are points of clarification.

Instruction

  • All instruction will continue in an online format. 
  • Wifi access is available in certain parking lots across the multiple SPC campuses.  Our IS staff have worked to make this accessible to the greatest degree possible.  This is primarily accessible at the Levelland campus. 

Students

  • Students, please remain strong during these times!  Make sure to communicate regularly with your instructors.  Our goal is to help you be successful during these times of change!
  • Residence Halls remain open to those students who do not have other safe access to shelter and dining.
  • Dining services with takeout meals are available to students who remain in the residence halls.
  • The Technology Center will not be available during this “Stay Home, Stay Safe” directive.  Residence Hall students will have access to computers and printers within the residence halls. 

SPC Staff

  • SPC staff will continue to work in remote locations to meet the needs of our students and maintain the essential operations of the College.  Intermittent on-site requirements will be shared by your respective supervisors.  Any intermittent requirements will be in compliance with all CDC and Department of Health standards.
  • All SPC staff will continue to be paid normal workweek hours.  Employees should coordinate with direct supervisors to ensure time is appropriately submitted.

As always, our primary goal is to protect the health of our students, faculty, and staff, and communities.  We also want to remain compliant with local and state officials and their respective directives.  Thank you all for your amazing support and work during these unprecedented times!  I have been impressed with the teamwork to maintain the education of our students!

Thank you, all!
