Dear Thomas More Students,
We are eagerly awaiting your arrival to begin the fall semester and plans are underway to ensure that you experience Thomas More in a safe and healthy environment. As I mentioned last month, the fall semester will begin as scheduled on Monday, August 17. Coaches will be in touch with start dates for each fall sport in the coming weeks so that student-athletes can prepare for pre-season.
As we prepare for the upcoming academic year, our priorities remain:
Across campus, we are busy with a number of improvements. We are in the process of installing a new all- season track and new roofs on Ackerman, Marian, Howard, and several other buildings across campus. In addition, we have purchased new lab equipment, expanded technology, and continue to make improvements inside and outside of the classrooms for the fall. As we are making improvements across campus, countless hours have been spent by numerous committees of faculty and staff drafting plans for what a safe and effective fall semester will look like.
At this time, preliminary drafts of opening plans have been shared with our new provost, Dr. Molly Smith, faculty, and staff for input so we can guarantee the final plan best fulfills our duty to ensure you with the upmost academic experience. We are also continuing to consult with state and federal governments, while following recommendations of the CDC, and we will report a final plan to you as soon as details are finalized.
Currently, these are things we know:
Health and Safety Protocols
As stated above, finalized details will be shared with you in the coming weeks. I appreciate your patience during this process. I am still certain that we will be stronger as an institution and community because of this experience. I look forward to welcoming our community back to campus and classrooms this upcoming fall.
God bless and Go Saints!
Best regards, President Chillo
