Sample Email


As your faculty member for this course, I want to ensure that you are kept up-to-date on the current situation and what it means for this class. SPC campuses are currently closed and are expected to reopen on [insert estimated date here]. To maintain communication, we will continue this course on MyCourses until SPC campuses reopen. 

What do you need to do? 

During this time, you should take the following steps: 

  • Check MyCourses regularly for emails from their faculty members. 
  • Check MyCourses for updates about the status of SPC campus operations. 
  • Don’t know how to use MyCourses?  Check out Introduction to MyCourses for a quick overview of the system. 
  • Have a question or two about MyCourses? Check out the MyCourses Support site for helpful tutorials on MyCourses and its tools. 
  • Also, make sure to sign-up for the Emergency Alert System to stay updated! 

What will I do? 

As the faculty member for the course, I will be communicating with you in MyCourses via email and course news items.  

[Below are recommended topics for faculty to discuss]  

  • Estimated time the college will be closed 
  • Upcoming assignment deadlines/changes - will approaching deadlines to be delayed? 
  • Changes to how work will be submitted - will students be expected to submit work in another format (i.e. via the Dropbox tool in MyCourses)? As you set this policy, please remember that 70% of SPC students live in Pinellas County. Depending on the type of emergency, some may be more heavily impacted and require special consideration.  
  • Expectations for communication - how often will you check email and respond to student questions?
