Dear Simpson College Community:
I continue to be impressed by and appreciative of all the work which our faculty, staff, and institutional leaders have been doing to help us prepare for the coming academic year. The decisions and planning have been complex, but by staying focused on providing the best student-centered experience while following public health guidelines, we are getting it done!
Over the past few weeks we have updated the community on several foundational decisions and guidelines, including:
- Simpson’s COVID-19 operational phases,
- the revised Fall 2020 calendar, and
- development of an academic model which has been shared with all faculty
As we now shift to individual departments and programs using these guidelines to tailor their own programs, services, and operations, it seems that campus-wide, weekly updates are less useful than they were in the earlier stages of dealing with the pandemic. So this will be the last scheduled COVID-19 update I will be sending. But we will most definitely continue to make members of the Simpson community aware of significant updates, changes, and resources as we proceed toward the start of the year.
In addition to periodic email updates, please continue to make use of the following Simpson College COVID resources:
We continue to maintain and respond to all questions submitted through our dedicated email address. Please email, COVIDResponse@simpson.edu.
And thank you, yet again, for your ongoing commitment to Simpson College. We are #ONESimpson.
