WCSU Returns to Normal, Reopening Information and Covid-19 Updates

Novel Coronavirus and COVID-19

March 12th Update

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

In light of the recent announcement of school closings in Danbury, Bethel and Brookfield, and President Ojakian’s recommendation that we move to online classes and telecommuting as soon as possible, we are officially cancelling all classes on Friday, March 13. Administrative offices and services will be operational.

Starting Monday, March 16, WCSU will be operating as a virtual campus. Buildings will be closed to the public, as we begin a deep cleaning process.  We will remain in this mode through April 5.

Students should enjoy spring break and then log into their classes online starting March 23.  Faculty will begin teaching and advising online after spring break.

Management & Confidential, SUOAF, A&R, and Clerical employees should communicate with Fred Cratty (crattyf@wcsu.edu) about the feasibility of working remotely during this period. Unfortunately, working remotely is not an option for Maintenance and Police employees.

It is important to note that we have had no reports of any members of the WCSU community being diagnosed with COVID-19 or of any known exposure.  However, we are acting with an abundance of caution, given the recent school closures in the surrounding communities.

At this time, we plan to return to normal operations on April 6. If there is any change, we will post it on our website and send out additional information.

Stay healthy,

Missy Alexander, Ph.D., Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs

Keith Betts, Ed.D., Vice President for Student Affairs.
