Campus Reopening Updates from September 23

Good morning Shoreline Staff,

As we start Opening Week today and get ready to start the Fall quarter next week, please review a few housekeeping items regarding campus reopening: 

Campus Access

  • Employees no longer need to request permission to come to campus. 
  • Faculty are not mandated to work in their offices on campus, but may elect to use their office space.  Meeting with students one-on-one or for office hours should continue to be done online or in maintained spaces on campus, such as your classroom if you are teaching on campus or in the study rooms in the Library. Faculty office spaces will not be maintained or cleaned by the College.
  • Core in-person service areas, such as the Library, are regularly cleaned and maintained by the College. A list of these areas can be found on the COVID-19 Updates for Faculty & Staff page and Hours of Operation
  • Curbside Pick-up/Drop-off Service will continue to be available to all students and employees, regardless of vaccinated status; it is a contactless service.   

Fall Reopening Updates & Reminders

  • Masks are required in all indoor settings. 
  • Social distancing is not mandated. While no office on campus is authorized to require social distancing, individuals may request social distancing from others during interactions.  
  • Personal inquiries into individual vaccination status are highly discouraged. Please respect your colleagues’ privacy. 
  • If you have concerns about how to navigate folks who do not follow College procedures, learn more about the campus de-escalation guidance during the de-escalation offering during Opening Week on Friday at 2 pm and Monday at 9 am
  • Learn about COVID-19 College Procedures and Guidelines during an Opening Week session on Friday at 1 pm. 
  • Ask questions at the Campus Update and Town Hall on Thursday, September 23 at 1 pm.

Vaccination Attestation Reminder

All employees must show proof of vaccination.  The following times are available during Opening Week (via Zoom, as noted) to briefly connect with Human Resources to show proof of vaccination. 

  • Thursday, September 23, 9:00am-12:00pm – ONLINE

In addition, to preserve a maximum amount of time in our opening week presentation and Q & A this afternoon, I am attaching some of our typical campus updates (below).  I am looking forward to seeing you all this afternoon as we begin fall quarter.

Thank you.

Acting President
