News and Events for the week of May 3

Good Monday Morning: 

Last week our Cinema-TV faculty and staff filmed over 300 graduates walking across the “stage”, picking up their diplomas and taking a photo. Thanks to everyone who volunteered to create a wonderful virtual graduation ceremony, which will take place on June 8 at 5pm. Start planning your viewing parties now.

Visiting Campus

Beginning today, LACC is changing the way everybody will access the college due to changing conditions and response to the pandemic. All faculty, staff, students, and visitors must use either the LACC SAFE app or the appropriate form per college/facility that is found online for every day that one comes on campus. The previous required method of having a fully staffed single checkpoint entry staffed by LASD personnel is not required. You can download the LACC SAFE app via the App Store on your Apple and Android phones and tablets or visit the LACC website and click COVID-19 Symptom Self Check under “Visiting Campus” on the main page, direct link http://laccd.edu/About/News/Pages/Self-Check-Survey-Landing.aspx.  

Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

On May 12, the Emergency Broadband Benefit, an FCC temporary program providing a monthly discount off households’ Internet bill and a one-time discount of $100 off a laptop or desktop, will be open for enrollment. We will provide updates and information on how to register for this program shortly.  

Campus Community Conversation

Mark your calendars for Monday, May 10 at 5pm when we will host a Campus Community Conversation with the Hillard Heintze team about campus safety and security. We will be sending out flyers including a QR code to register for the Zoom meeting. 

Student Workshops

Our Life Skills Center is offering student workshops throughout the Spring 2021 semester. Workshops are held online every Tuesday from 12:30ipm – 1:30pm.

The next workshop on Tuesday, May 4 will focus on “How to Deal with Your Frustrations” and include tips on managing anger and constructive ways to express strong feelings. 

Campus Status Update

LA County is expected to move to the least restrictive reopening tier, the Yellow Tier, this Thursday, May 6th. More businesses will open indoors with limited numbers allowed indoors. In June we will begin to offer terms, Summer I and Summer II for the last time that are all online. Beginning in fall, limited on campus classes will resume. 

May marks the last month of classes for the Spring 2021 term.
