We hope that you and your family remain safe and that things are beginning to return to normal. We know that for some of you, the disruptions brought about by hurricane Ida have been more severe. We are doing everything we can to ensure that you can complete your semester with minimal disruptions. We are also looking forward to seeing you soon.
Here is some information about your schedules if you are enrolled in the full-semester courses. We are happy to report that our systems are up and running. If you want to add a class, you can do so through your LORA portal on the Single Sign On site (sso.loyno.edu). If you want to change/modify your schedule, please contact Kathy Gros at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are on a waiting list to get into a class, we will be reviewing those lists by September 10th and will let you know the availability of those classes.
As you know, the hurricane also forced us to cancel several classes, and we must take steps to make up for those missing days of instruction. We have determined that this can be achieved without major disruption to the Academic Calendar with only one change – cancellation of the fall break originally scheduled for October 11th and 12th. We have also decided that there will be no changes to the Thanksgiving break or the Final Exam week.
To make up lost time, your professors will work with you to ensure that your course materials are fully covered. They will allow maximum flexibility to enable you to complete the semester as intended. Please contact your professors directly to get additional information.
And as the Jewish members of our community begin the High Holy Days tonight by celebrating Rosh Hashanah, we all take stock of our blessings and reflect on how we can be of service to one another as we pray to get through the days of recovery ahead.
