We look forward to welcoming students back to campus for the fall semester. Please know that while we cannot predict what the semester may hold, we will do our best to adapt as needed while keeping the safety of our students and staff at the forefront of our decision-making. We depend on a strong partnership with you to accomplish this. We are all in this together and are grateful for your support.
