Important Student Updates: SPRING QTR

Student Message:

Welcome to Spring Quarter! Here are some important reminders about masks, vaccine attestation, operating hours, and parking. 

MASKS 

Masks are voluntary for spring quarter, but there may be some occasions where masks are still required:  

  • Masks are required in clinical and other health-care settings (including the Counseling Center) and on College shuttles and vans.    
  • Masks may be temporarily required or recommended during a COVID-19 outbreak, when community levels are high, or for those who test positive and are returning to campus after isolation at home.   

Please note:  

  • Any student has the option to wear a mask for any reason, at any point.   
  • Individual instructors or staff members cannot require others to mask in their classrooms, offices, or departments. 
  • COVID-19 vaccination verification or eligible exemption will continue to be required for all employees and on-campus students. Please attest to your vaccination status by April 17th.   
  • Stay home if you are sick, and report symptoms or COVID-19 exposures via this form for direction on health and safety steps needed. 
  • The College will monitor the level of COVID-19 in our community and if conditions change, updated guidance will be communicated to students and staff.   

VACCINE ATTESTATION 

Students new to taking classes on campus or those with prior holds on their accounts need to attest to their vaccination status or an eligible exemption by April 17, 2022. Holds will be put onto accounts of students who have not done so. Students taking classes entirely online are not required to attest to their vaccination status. 

CAMPUS OPERATING HOURS 

  • Monday-Thursdays 8 am-5 pm: all services will be available in person, as well as online.     
  • Fridays 8am – 4:30 pm: all services will be available online. 
  • For a list of exceptions, please check the Campus Operating Hours page
  • The PUB (9000 building) will be open for you to access Avanti Market, package lockers, and study spaces. 

PARKING 

Parking on campus remains free for spring quarter; no permits will be required but hazardous/illegal parking will accrue fines.   

QUESTIONS? 

  • Open office hours with the COVID-19 Support Coordinator: Thursdays, 10:30 am – 11:30 am, via Zoom.         
  • Email covidsupervisor@shoreline.edu or call 206-495-7744 during regular College operating hours.  Check the COVID-19 Updates site for the latest information.     

We hope you have a successful start to your Spring Quarter!
