Remote Operations Beginning Weds 9/21 thru Thurs 9/22

Dear Campus Community,   

Your safety and comfort are important to us. ET has continued to closely monitor conditions on campus today with regard to air quality as a result of the wildfire smoke in the area. Out of an abundance of caution, the College will move to remote operations beginning today (Weds 9/21) at 3:30pm PST through tomorrow, end of day (Thurs 9/22).  

This means that the physical campus is closed but all campus services will be available online/remotely. We are disappointed that we can’t be together in person for our Opening Week to kick off our fall quarter, but we are confident this is the best option for our campus community over the next few days.  

Here is how the next few days will look: 

Wednesday, September 21st (today) 

  • All campus services will remain open and offered remotely through regular business hours. 
  • Service units are responsible for posting signage/online messaging regarding access to remote services today before you leave.  
  • Signage should be posted with QR code or link to a zoom room All service units should continue to offer services online through zoom sessions, etc for one-on-one video support in lieu of face-to-face assistance. 

Thursday, September 22nd (tomorrow) 

  • All campus services will remain open and offered remotely between 8am – 9am, and 11:30am – 5pm. 
  • Campus services will be closed 9am – 11:30am for opening week convocation activities.   
  • Opening week activities for Thursday, September 22 will be offered remotely for all attendees.
