Community Care College Holds Class Despite Tulsa Tornado
TULSA, Oklahoma - Tulsa's Community Care College held class Monday despite the campus being closed after being majorly impacted by this weekend's tornado.
The college's president, Dr. Kevin Kirk, said the school will be closed because of water damage, storm debris and downed electrical lines, classes at the school in the 4200 block of South Sheridan.
Although classes won't be held on campus, a news release says students will continue attending by the college's virtual classroom as well as additional support from Oklahoma Technical College and Clary Sage College.
Kirk issued the following statement:
“The college is grateful for the cooperation and patience that the employees and students have shown. Although offices, laboratories, and classroom space are displaced; the positive attitudes and incredible support from the community has made a challenging situation into one of compassion and love.”
After the storm, Dr. Kirk says the school's administration responded quickly to assess the damage and to implement disaster recovery procedures.
Kirk said the integrity of student records - hard copy and online- are protected, and that students should remain in touch with professors and check social media for updates.
