Happy Monday, Students!

I am very excited for you and for all of us: We have made it to the end of the semester safe and sound. What a ride! I am still marveling at the fact that our campus community did such a wonderful job of keeping COVID cases incredibly low the entire academic year. On behalf of the entire administration and the faculty at LC, thank you, you did it! Your actions epitomize what “being in community” really means and, for certain, WeB4Me@LC was a value and a reality that you all took very seriously.

As you know, we are happy to finally be able to offer a vaccination clinic on campus. The clinic, which will be administering the Moderna two-shot vaccine, will be held tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Pamplin Sports Center. In order to receive a vaccination, you must sign up for an available appointment using this link by 2 p.m. today. If all spots are filled, please contact Heyke Kirkendall-Baker at hkirkendall-baker@lclark.edu, and we will try to increase capacity to meet demand. After you have signed up for an available time slot, you should receive a confirmation email. 

 

On the COVID front: Especially with commencement season upon us, and a well-earned eagerness to socialize and celebrate, I urge each of you to remain vigilant and mindful of continuing the safety practices that have kept most of us healthy. Here’s the update: 

  • COVID-19 cases: So far, for the month of April, the College has conducted 917 tests on campus, and we had four total cases for the month of April. 
  • Effluent testing results: Effluent testing has been discontinued for the summer, and we will assess the program.
  • Mandatory testing for all 2021 graduates: All seniors who plan to participate in the commencement ceremonies and celebrations, you must complete COVID-19 testing on May 4th.

Again, thank you for making this year such success. Graduating seniors, congratulations to all of you--we are so very proud of you and your accomplishments.

Grateful to be your VPSL and Dean of Students, LC.

As always, WeB4Me@LC.
