NEW THIS WEEK
E-Learning Day on the 24th

We will have our first E-Learning day on September 24th. E-Learning days are intended to be catch up days for students and give teachers and staff an opportunity for professional development. Classes will be asynchronous (no live classes) and held remotely but will still have a check-in that students should complete before 3:00 pm that day. Classes will review expectations , so students know what they need to do on that day. Please note that this only applies to on-campus classes, classes held off campus will still follow that schools calendar.
Check your GPA!
See the attached links on how to check transcripts and get your GPA.
NO PARKING
We kindly ask that students DO NOT park in front of the mailbox located on Innovation Drive. Doing so has become a hindrance to our mail carrier.

We appreciate your cooperation!

MENTAL HEALTH CORNER

According to the ADAA, causes of test anxiety may include a fear of failure, lack of adequate prep time, or bad experiences taking tests in the past. You're not alone! Please checkout CLEARFEAR as one resource that may help you overcome moments of anxiety.

COVID - 19 PROTOCOLS AND UPDATES
  • Face coverings are not required for students and staff; however, facemasks are recommended to be worn by unvaccinated individuals and those that feel more comfortable doing so.
  • CEC will be supportive of individuals that choose or need to wear masks. It is expected that every member of the CEC community will respect each other's decisions on these subjects.
  • We will continue to encourage hand washing and frequent cleaning of high touch areas.
  • Increased ventilation and use of outdoor spaces will be implemented whenever possible.
  • Any staff or students experiencing symptoms should stay home, this is the most important practice to limit quarantines of students and staff this year. CECFC will follow CDPHE’s updated Return to Learn guidance for determining when students and staff can return to school. Students who are home sick can still access their classes through Microsoft Teams or the community college portal. Students should check course syllabi for requirements regarding absences in each of their courses.
  • Information on the number of positive/probable cases among staff and students will be provided in the weekly newsletter. If your student is in class with a positive/probable case you will be contacted by the school so you are aware of the exposure.
  • CEC’s virtual program is available for any students wishing to learn remotely this year. More information can be found here: CECFC Online Learning
