Belton, Texas – University of Mary Hardin-Baylor administrators announced this afternoon that the university will extend its Spring Break through the week of March 16-20.
“We are committed to making decisions in a responsible way and are continuing to consult with federal, state, and local resources,” President Randy O’Rear said in a written statement. “With rapidly changing developments and increasing concern, we have determined the best course of action is to extend Spring Break by one week. Classes and other university events scheduled for March 16-20 are canceled. A decision about changes to spring athletic events will be made separately in consultation with officials from the American Southwest Conference.
“Because of the dynamic nature of this situation, a determination has not been made about class format after March 20. Decisions regarding next steps related to delivery of education and student services will be communicated as soon as they are made,” O’Rear said.
Most campus housing will remain closed during the extended Spring Break. Students should remain off campus at this time. However, students who have no alternative living arrangements should contact Dr. Brandon Skaggs, Vice President for Student Life.
“The safety and well-being of our campus community is our utmost concern. Additional announcements are forthcoming and will be posted at www.umhb.edu,” O’Rear concluded.
