Maintaining Health & Safety 2021-22: Returning and In-School Guidelines
We look forward to welcoming students back to campus for the 2021-22 academic year. While we had hoped to see the pandemic in the rearview mirror, we are returning with important health and safety protocols in place so that faculty can teach with confidence, staff can work safely, and our students can continue to learn and flourish. We have updated our community health and safety guidelines and encourage you to read them here:
Please note that due to the nature of the pandemic, future developments regarding New York’s infection rates may require changes based on mandates from New York State and City authorities. We are well prepared to respond immediately to any and all potential COVID-19 scenarios and restrictions that may arise.
