We have had a great week of moving students on to campus and welcoming all students back to in-person instruction!
Welcome back, Skyhawks. Faculty and staff have done an incredible job launching this semester of in-person learning and we know you’re ready to do your part now. Before you head to class this week, please remember to take these critical safety precautions.
We hope you are looking forward to our Spring 2021 Semester, which gets started at the end of next week! We are eager to have you back in our classes, whether that be in-person or virtually--all of your Fort Lewis College faculty and staff can't wait to welcome you back!
We are excited to welcome you back to in-person instruction this Spring! We learned a lot about public health and COVID-19 in the Fall and we’re hoping it has prepared us to have another successful semester.
The spring semester will kick off soon and now is the time for all of us to think about how we keep ourselves and our community as safe as possible.
San Juan Basin Public Health and the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment are moving La Plata County to COVID-19 Dial Level Red: Severe Risk beginning Friday, Nov. 20.
I know that you are coming to terms with our rapid shift to online courses. To help with this unexpected situation, I offer detailed information in the attached Academic Resources & Updates List, outlining the forms of support FLC will provide (including updates to coursework, advising, grading, tutoring, technology, wellness, graduation—and more) as we complete the Fall 2020 semester.
To protect the health of FLC community members, and to strengthen our ability to safely manage our recent rise in COVID-19 cases, we are moving some college operations, including most classes, online for the remainder of the semester. However, our campus and housing remain safe and will remain open.
Through cooperative testing and investigation with San Juan Basin Public Health, Fort Lewis College has identified a COVID-19 outbreak in the FLC community. Per SJBPH, an outbreak is defined as two or more confirmed COVID-19 cases among individuals from separate households within a single classroom or cohort, whose onset of disease occurred within the same 14 days.
Fort Lewis College is excited to partner with COVIDCheck Colorado to offer our community the first opportunity to experience a cutting-edge COVID-19 testing experience via a pilot study of SalivaDirect™.
