COVID-19 Important Update
Chatfield College remains committed to providing as much information as possible about the COVID-19 impact on our community. Our goal is to protect the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff during these unprecedented times. As you know, the conditions are changing rapidly and numerous announcements have been issued by public health officials, intended to protect all of us.
Therefore, effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020 we will switch to at-distance instruction for all courses. Today is the final day of in-person instruction. This change will remain in effect until further notice. Please note classes are not cancelled and you are expected to participate remotely.
The work of the College will continue and we will remain open during this unusual event. With the exception of teaching remotely, all other College functions, including non-teaching responsibilities (committee work, faculty meetings, academic advising), will continue and all employees are expected to report to campus.
All offices and on-campus resources will be available to students during this time, but the College may limit the number of students in any designated area.
Registration for summer courses will continue as planned. Students should contact their academic advisor for assistance.
Employees responsible for College operations are encouraged to utilize strategies to conduct their work while practicing recommended social distancing practices.
All college events planned or scheduled through April 17, 2020 have been suspended.
If you feel unwell or believe you have been in contact with someone who has become unwell, do not come in to the campus. Instead, please consult your medical provider, and monitor your health conditions every day. An effective way to do this is to take your temperature: if it is at or above 100.4F, do not come to campus.
Social Distancing has proven to be an effective method to avoid contagion. This includes;
• avoid crowded places,
• limit activities in public
• keep your distance from others (about 6 feet)
• avoid public transportation (public transportation, ride-shares, taxis)
Please check your email often for updates.
