Hi Campus Community,  

Here are this week’s updates! 
 RETURN TO CAMPUS/COVID-19 

  • Winter 2022 classes continue as planned: in-person, hybrid, and online. 
  • Executive Team (ET) is closely monitoring the changing conditions of the pandemic, including the number of COVID-19 exposure reports submitted each day by students, staff, and faculty. Here are the latest numbers: 
COVID Exposure Report Table

During this time period, 25 positive cases have been identified. Most of those cases occurred off-campus.  

  • 90% of in-person or on-campus students have attested to their vaccination status for winter quarter.  
  • Stay home if you’re sick. If you suspect having been exposed to someone with COVID-19, are experiencing symptoms, or have tested positive, fill out a COVID-19 exposure report.  For your convenience, here are a few locations offering testing:  

If you are otherwise healthy with mild symptoms and cannot find testing availability, you should presume that you have COVID-19 and self-isolate according to current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines

  • KN-95 masks have been ordered for front-line staff and for faculty who are teaching in-person and will be distributed as soon as they arrive, hopefully early next week.  
  • The vaccine clinic is now in the Quiet Dining Room in the PUB. Walk-ins are welcome; just tell them you are a college employee.  Boosters for ages 12-15 are not available at this time. The public should make an appointment for the Shoreline site.  
  • The Parent-Child Center closed temporarily. Updates on reopening will be provided directly to parents with enrolled children as soon as information is available.  
  • Update building signage to tell students you are open. Use this branded template.  
  • Have questions? Email covidsupervisor@shoreline.edu or call 206-495-7744 during regular College operating hours.  
  • Check the COVID-19 Updates site for the latest information.

Campus Security Officer Dhirendra ‘Dan’ Kumar – Memorial in P.U.B.

“Dear Colleagues and Campus Community,

As many of you have learned, Shoreline Community College Campus Security Officer Dan Kumar passed away on while on duty, following a medical emergency, January 3rd, Monday evening. Dan was not only a well-respected employee around the college but a valued and treasured member of Safety & Security office. Enough cannot be said about Dan, in regard to the caring person he was, the love that he continually spoke of for his family, or the dedication he showed as a public servant. We are eternally grateful for having the opportunity to have worked with and known Dan, he will be missed dearly.

A memorial has been set up inside of Bldg. 9000 (PUB) that can be viewed through the window of Room 9202. There will also be a book left for you to leave messages to Dan or his family if you wish to do so. The book will be given to Dan’s family when the memorial is taken down on Friday, January 14th.

I appreciate the support that the College has shown for Dan and our office. I would continue to ask that you limit all calls, emails, and office visits to business items only so that Safety & Security can continue to ensure prompt response to campus needs.

Respectfully,

Gregory Cranson

Director │ Department of Safety & Security

Our Shoreline Community College ctcLink Team is busy preparing for GO LIVE on February 28, 2022. The intent of this weekly update is to keep you informed of the projects, testing, and training sessions your colleagues are working on in the upcoming week. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as staff members prepare for the ctcLink launch. We also want to thank those who have worked to keep our timeline on track.   
  
We are working hard to finish the first set of User Testing (Sprint 1).
