March 16 COVID-19 Update

Dear colleagues,

First and foremost, I want to thank you all for your commitment to meet our mission and serve our learners under unprecedented times.  Along with implementing new ways to deliver our teaching and learning mission, all of you are dealing with the impact that the COVID-19 is having on your families and friends.  Please know we are here to help in anyway we can. 

You will be receiving updates from us often, and I encourage you to read them and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.  Things seem to be changing by the hour! An immediate priority for us has been to provide direction to those employees and students returning from international travels. As the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold in a rapid way, The College of St. Scholastica is implementing policies aligned with CDC and MDH guidelines to protect and support our entire CSS Community.

Please review this memo from my office addressing the St. Scholastica COVID-19 International Travel Return Policy for those faculty and staff who are returning from travel abroad.

A very similar letter is being sent to students returning from international travels, with a second letter of guidance being sent to parents/guardians. We want you to know this so you are informed that students have received the same message.

We ask for your patience and understanding as we move forward through these uncertain times.Thank you for all you are doing - we are blessed to have one another! Let's seek the silver linings and keep each other in our thoughts and prayers. 

Stay well, be well, and take good care of yourselves and your loved ones.
Barbara
