As you prepare for winter term classes, and as a follow up to President Howard’s Winter Term update email sent on November 22, below are updated COVID-19 resources for instructors to review, incorporate and share with students as would be helpful.   

Syllabus Statement

To ensure that expectations are clear to students regarding COVID-19 protocols, please include the statement below in your syllabus. Feel free to add additional information relevant to your specific class. 

Note: Faculty may restrict any eating and drinking within their own classrooms. 

If a student does not comply with the mask mandate, Public Safety can be contacted to assist (503-399-5023) and a Student Concern Report should be filed as soon as possible.

Students participating in in-person classes must adhere to Chemeketa’s protocols. Masks are required to be worn correctly indoors at all times, unless one is actively eating/drinking, and outdoors when physical distancing is not possible. Face coverings must cover the nose and mouth and be snug fitting.

The college requires that all students and staff conduct a health assessment before coming on campus. Stay home if ill.  If unsure about your symptoms, use the CDC’s COVID-19 Self-Checker to help you make decisions about seeking appropriate medical care. Notify your instructor if you are sick or if someone you have been exposed to has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and complete the Staff/Student COVID-19 Questionnaire

Welcome Script

The Emergency and Risk Management Team has created a script for faculty to read to students during the first in-person class session. The highlighted text may be updated to be applicable to your specific class. Feel free to make a copy of the file and edit for your own use.
