Thank you for your patience, questions, and for practicing social distancing in this uncertain time. We are working hard to put measures in place to ensure your health and safety as we prepare for classes to resume on March 30th, 2020. Please use this extended Spring Break to practice social distancing, good hygiene and hand-washing, relaxation and rejuvenation, and to prepare for continuing your classes online or remotely for the remainder of the semester.
Do you have access to reliable computer and internet?
Your advisors, faculty, and support staff will begin to reach out to you via phone, email, and D2L Brightspace to answer questions and help ensure you are best prepared to successfully continue the semester online or remotely.
Your safety and health is of utmost importance to us. Remember, to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, it’s important that all of us take the same precautions recommended for avoiding colds and flu:
Living through pandemic such as COVID-19 can be extremely stressful. Dealing with the threat of COVID-19 is upsetting because it is outside the range of a normal day to day experience. You may feel anxiety, or fear for yourself and your loved ones becoming exposed to the virus. At the same time, you may be feeling overwhelmed by the constant, rapidly changing, and often conflicting information provided by the media regarding the growing danger of COVID-19. While it is critical during this time to take care of your physical health, you also need to pay attention to your emotional health. Print this PDF and review it to help you recognize the stress and provider resources to assist you. Being informed by reputable sources can help you realize that there are so many people working to protect you. Consult directly with our counselors or advisors for other resources.
Our campus has restricted access right now for the safety of our staff, faculty and students. However, our staff and faculty are available to provide assistance and student services remotely. For any questions, please call the main phone call center number 507-433-0600 and check the www.riverland.edu/healthupdate page regularly.
Hang in there! We will get through this together! We are here to support you.
