As the new school year begins, a reminder regarding two college policies:
The Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs policy (Policy 1.11) now prohibits the use of all smoking materials on college-owned and operated property, except inside vehicles parked on or travelling through campus.
The Children on Campus policy (Policy 5.45) states that unaccompanied children under age 16 are not allowed at any LLCC location except for cultural, sporting and educational activities structured specifically for children. Children may not attend regular class sessions with their parents or others and may not be left unattended anywhere on campus, including employee work areas. Additionally, employees should not bring children to work with the intent of providing child care during a scheduled work day.
For more information, please click on the policy numbers to read them in their entirety.

The State Journal-Register incorrectly reported Saturday that LLCC’s smoking ban would begin June 1. A correction was issued, and this article correctly states that the LLCC Board of Trustees approved a change in policy to bring the college into compliance with the new Illinois Smoke-Free Campus Act that takes effect July 1.
Smoking and use of tobacco products will be prohibited on any college-owned or operated property, except when an individual is traveling through or parked on campus in a personal vehicle. All students, employees and visitors to any LLCC location will be required to comply with this policy, as of July 1.
As most already know, yesterday morning at approximately 10:15 a.m., the General Closing message came across our main campus Emergency Notification System. The broadcast message in question was sent inadvertently while college personnel were performing upgrades to one of the components of our system. We immediately sent emails and used the LLCC Connect emergency messaging system to let our community know what had happened. Please note that we do not conduct unannounced tests or emergency drills at LLCC, and we apologize for any inconvenience this technical problem may have caused our students or staff.
