Updates for Start of Fall Quarter

All Staff,

I am reaching out to thank you for working so hard to make fall reopening a success. We welcome students back to campus tomorrow and I wanted to provide some additional updates

Reopening – All of the below measures will continue to encourage a safe return to campus for all faculty and staff.

Covid Safety

  • Vaccinated & Masked Campus – All students and employees on campus must complete a vaccination attestation form and wear a mask indoors. Learn more: www.shoreline.edu/covid19.  
  • Send any student who forgets their mask to an ASK ME station at 1000, PUB/9000, Library/4000, FOSS/5000.
  • For questions about COVID safety, please email covidsupervisor@shoreline.edu or call 206-495-7744. The phone is staffed during core in-person service hours of Monday -Thursday 8:00 am-5:00 pm and Friday 8:00 am-12:00 pm; after hours, call Safety/Security 206-235-5860.

Equipment for Online Faculty

  • For those faculty who are not teaching on campus and need equipment please request items through the Instructional Equipment and Home Office Request form.    
  • Human Resources can provide equipment needed for medical accommodation of employees while working remotely; contact scchr@shoreline.edu directly.  

De-escalation Protocol

The executive team trained today on de-escalation basics. The same training was presented to all staff on Friday, September 24 during opening week. The training was conducted by Greg Cranson and will continue to be available to staff (details forthcoming). A reminder to all faculty and staff that in the engagement with students or the public we would ask that you:

  1. Remind people that wearing a mask is mandatory and ask for compliance. There will be no exemptions made for any student or staff that will allow for anyone to be unmasked indoors.
  2. If you don’t receive compliance, then indicate to the student that it may be an issue of student discipline.
  3. If you continue to receive non-compliance, pause your class, exit the room and call the COVID-19 Supervisor at 206-495-7744 to gain assistance.  Security can be reached at 206-235-5860.
  4. Begin your service or class again if the student/person becomes compliant or removes themselves from the situation. If the situation does not resolve itself quickly, you may need to cancel your course (please update your dean if this occurs).

Construction on HSAMCC

  • The 2500 and 2400 buildings are under demolition for the next 3-4 weeks, Monday – Friday from 7:00 am-5:30 pm.
  • Trucks exiting and leaving campus along with flaggers and signage to assist with traffic control. Noise from an excavator is also expected. 
  • Dust controlling measures are in place along with air monitors set up around the site to ensure no particulates leave the construction area.

Thank you for all that you do for our students!
