The plan for fall is available on this website. Having a fully vaccinated community will allow us to ease many of the restrictions that were in place during the last academic year. In light of regional conditions, as we begin the semester we will require our community to follow some key public health requirements. As always, we will monitor the evolving conditions of the pandemic, and we are prepared to adapt our policies as the situation warrants, with the hope of removing restrictions when it is safe to do so.
