WELCOME TO THE UCONN ADULT LEARNING PROGRAM
March 30, 2020
DEAR FELLOW ALP MEMBERS:
Due to the ongoing and uncertain situation surrounding the Coronavirus Pandemic, the Board of Directors has made several key decisions which we wanted to announce to our membership:
- All classes for the remainder of the Spring Semester are officially cancelled at all ALP meeting locations effective immediately. The Annual Membership Meeting originally scheduled for June 2, 2020, is postponed until September 17, 2020.
- The Annual Membership Meeting and the Fall Preview Meeting of ALP Courses will now be combined into one meeting and scheduled for September 17, 2020. We all hope we will be back to normal operations by that time.
- All ALP members who registered and paid for the Spring Semester Courses will not be charged for the Fall Semester Courses.
Be assured that the
ALP Board of Directors is working hard in the background to keep
things on track in order to be more than ready when we are allowed to
have our regular meetings again.
We are also exploring new ways to
supplement and enhance our programing and the administration of ALP.
These enhancements will include the use of a credit card system as an
alternate form of payment and the possible use of the Zoom
teleconferencing platform for selected classes, assuming the attendee’s
so desire. You will be hearing more about these enhancements in the
next issue of the ALP–HORN, scheduled for mid-May publication . Of course, we will continue to maintain our traditional
ALP format for classes.
The planning and development of new courses goes on by our Curriculum Committee as usual and we look forward to seeing all of you again in the fall. In the meantime, stay safe and well. If you have any questions, please contact the ALP Office at (860) 785-5609.
IDLE TIME ACTIVITIES
Having a hard time figuring out how to spend your days stuck at home?
Below are some links to activities that may help you pass the time.
All different types: https://www.earthcam.com/
Online games/crosswords/word searches, etc:
Seabury is pleased to offer parking for all ALP classes and events at the convenient Hilltop Parking Lot at the north end of our campus (near the raised garden beds and pickleball court). Please park in unnumbered spaces only. After parking, ALP members may enter door #15 located tunder the large awning across from the parking lot. The door will open automatically when you press the intercom button. Once inside, there will be signs to direct you to your destination.
If you have a temporary or permanent disability that makes it difficult for you to get to your class or special event from the Hilltop parking lot, use the parking lot by the new chapel on your right as you enter Seabury. Then take the short walk to the main entrance. Valet parking is no longer available.
There is NO PARKING along the curb across from the main entrance. You will be ticketed!
We could use more help. If you would like to
"give something back" to our Adult Learning Program in return for
all that you've received (or are about to receive), please let an ALP board member know! At your next ALP session, let the registrar know that you are interested, and someone will get in touch to see how you can be of service.
