A. Bob Hogue School's top priorities are the health and safety of employees, students, customers, and the community while continuing to provide the highest quality educational programs and support under any circumstances.
As you are aware, things in our community continue to change rapidly relative to COVID-19. In response, we've made the decision to cancel all live, in-person classes with start dates from March 23 through May 1, 2020.
If you have registered for a live, in-person class, we are notifying all customers and whenever possible, we will provide you with other options, such as online, self study, or virtual live online classes to ensure you receive the education and support you need from Bob Hogue School. In many cases, we can help you find an alternative online option so you can continue with your educational program. If that is not an option, we will reschedule once we have re-established live, in-person classes at your location.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at (800) 330-9411 so that we can help you make the right decision for your needs.
Please remember, even if you are feeling a little unwell, please stay home. Staying home when sick is the best way to prevent the spread of germs. We will work with you to make up a class or provide other online or self study options so you can complete your education successfully.
Q. What are my options if I want to minimize my contact with others?
A. Whenever possible, we have options for self-paced online options. As the need arises, we will proactively move education experiences to online options.
Q. What should I do to protect myself and others from spreading the virus?
A. Follow the guidelines laid out by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
-Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
-Avoid close contact with people who are sick
-Practice respiratory hygiene: cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue
-If you have fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical care early
-Stay informed and follow the advice given by your healthcare provider
-Stay home when you are sick
-Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
Q. What should I do if I'm nervous or anxious about the virus?
A. First, recognize it's normal to have these kinds of feelings. This is a serious situation. Here are practical steps you can take:
-Focus on what is in your control. For whatever is stressing you out the most, determine one concrete thing you can do. Then do it.
-Take a deep breath and exhale slowly to interrupt anxious thoughts and anchor yourself to the present.
-Practice good anti-disease hygiene. Make a personal preparedness plan. Get sleep and exercise. Eat right.
This guidance might sound familiar. It's how to approach anxiety-producing standardized tests. As our teachers say, control what is in your control.
