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.
