In sorrow with First Nations Peoples, our FLC community expresses mourning regarding the news of the mass grave of Indigenous children. We acknowledge how heavy this tragic news weighs on Indigenous families who experienced the atrocities of boarding schools in Canada and the U.S. We also acknowledge how important it is for FLC to continue to examine our own Native American boarding school history with honest institutional reflection and transparency.

By announcing our commitment to a vaccinated student body in the fall, we are taking the first steps to return to normal campus life. Here is our policy that will add COVID-19 to the list of vaccinations required for all students in the fall, which will take effect on August 1, 2021. This policy allows both medical and non-medical exemptions. You will find that it aligns with our existing protocols for the MMR vaccine.
