    I trust the first week of the semester is ending well. We were fortunate to have the expected Tuesday night PSPS shutoff canceled for the main campus. Having a triple emergency situation (potential power shutoff on top of being an evacuation center on top of the pandemic) was stressful for some of us, and I want to give a big thank you to our physical plant and campus safety and other staff...

    To the Shasta College Community:
    I recognize that there are some questions and discussions surrounding masking mandates, testing, vaccinations, and new ways of interacting with each other as we return to campus. Our EOC has been vigilant in monitoring…

    It’s amazing to consider that it’s been nearly a year since our college and communities had to quickly adapt to the onset of COVID-19. Every day since then, I’ve been increasingly inspired by the selfless efforts and countless hours all of you have given in support and service to our students and communities. All of the work we’ve been able to do together under these extraordinary circumstances...

    As you are likely aware, this month makes 12 months that we have been in this state of emergency because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It surely has been one of, if not the most challenging year in our college's history.

    I trust you are holding up as well possible under this long emergency. I am writing to celebrate a positive success story - the hosting of Dignity Health and Shasta County Public Health on vaccine clinics last Friday and Saturday. My understanding is that over 3200 Shasta County residents were vaccinated. Thank you to our campus safety, physical plant staff and others who did so much...
