July 28th, 2020 Update

Dear Student,

Governor Jay Inslee and Secretary of Health John Wiesman announced changes late last week to Washington’s phased approach to reopening. The changes target activities that data have shown provide a higher risk of COVID-19 exposure.

In addition, Secretary Wiesman announced an expansion of his face coverings order, effective Saturday, July 25. The expansion will require face coverings in all common spaces, such as elevators, hallways, shared spaces, and college housing.

As a reminder, the College will continue remote operations and remote instruction through fall quarter. However, some employees and some professional-technical programs will continue to be pre-authorized to participate in limited on-campus learning.

Please remember that if you are authorized to come to Shoreline’s campus for work or instruction, you will need to wear a mask in all common spaces to comply with the Governor’s order, as well as complete the Campus Access Form and follow all other health protocols appropriate to your level of authorization to be on campus.

Thank you for shifting your behavior to help all of us stay safe!

Gratefully,

Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
President
Office of the President

Can't pay for things because of COVID-19? Many people are trying to figure out how to afford school when they are facing additional financial hardship due to a sudden loss of wages or additional health care costs. Here are some ways to receive assistance:

    • Our Financial Aid office can help students navigate federal and state loans, grants, and scholarships – and they can help review existing aid packages to see if students may qualify for more aid if their income has changed since they first applied
    • Our Foundation office has emergency grants for students in financial crisis, as well as quarterly scholarships to help pay for tuition, books, and fees
    • Our Benefits Hub connects students with financial resources, food, transportation, and housing support
    • The Federal CARES Act has provided additional emergency funds for students experiencing financial challenges due to COVID-19
    • The Employment Security Department has adopted some emergency rules to relieve workers whose employment has been disrupted by the virus
    • Learn more about various financial resource options from the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions.

1. Reestablish a routine – wake up, go to sleep, and perform daily activities at consistent times throughout your week.

2. Eat, sleep, and exercise – even if you don’t feel like it.

3. Acknowledge and accept your feelings and thoughts – sadness, grief, anger, and fear are normal reactions.

4. Talk to friends and family about how you are feeling or thinking.

5. Do something you enjoy.

6. Seek trusted sources of information but avoid information overload. Think critically as you follow news reports and verify information you receive from social media or loved ones.

7. Keep your distance and connect with others via phone, video chat, social media, etc.

8. Do what makes you feel calmer: breathing, sitting in a quiet space, reading, meditating, listening to music, journaling, going for a walk.

9. Practice self-compassion, being kind and compassionate to yourself, much like you would for a friend a family member.

10. Understand what you can, and cannot, control. You can control your attitude, your own kindness and grace, and your behavior. You cannot control the actions of others, predicting what will happen, or how long this will last.

11. Seek additional help. Individuals who feel an overwhelming nervousness, a lingering sadness, or other prolonged reactions that adversely affect their job, school studies, or relationships should consult with a trained and experienced mental health professional.
