ON-CAMPUS UPDATE
Weekly Check-In | Sept. 11, 2020
WEEKLY RESIDENT UPDATE, Sept. 11
In order to keep our campus residents up to date on policy changes and information regarding COVID-19, we'll be sending weekly emails throughout the fall semester.

Please feel free to contact a member of our staff if you have questions or concerns. At the bottom of this message you'll find a list of helpful resources.
SPRING CALENDAR UPDATE
With this morning’s announcement regarding the spring 2021 academic calendar, Housing and Dining Services will make adjustments to the residence hall calendar.

These changes will be announced by the end of September — please watch your email for updates.
WHAT HAPPENS IF ALL CLASSES GO ONLINE?
K-State continues to operate in Phase 3 status with the campus open and some in-person instruction. However, some students have asked what would happen with the residence halls if K-State were to move to online instruction only.

If that were to occur, the residence halls would remain open for students who need or want to remain on campus. Dining services would continue to serve as well. Some changes to operations in the residence halls and dining centers may be made to adjust to the situation and the number of students who remain on campus. 
THE IMPORTANCE OF SOCIAL DISTANCING
Distance
Social or physical distancing is a key component to slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Over the past few weeks, some students have had to go into quarantine status because they were in close contact (defined as within six feet for 10 minutes or more) with a student who later tested positive for COVID-19. Keeping social distancing in mind and maintaining a 6-foot distance from others will lessen the likelihood you will need to quarantine.

Some locations to be especially cognizant of this is when you are eating. Outside or inside, keeping a 6-foot distance from others while eating together is essential because you're without a face covering. 
ID USE AT THE DINING CENTERS
Please be sure to bring your student ID when you're accessing the dining centers. This speeds up the process of getting students through the line. If your ID isn't working properly, either at the dining centers or in the residence hall card readers, please contact the ID Center in the K-State Student Union.
HELPFUL RESOURCES
Campus life can be stressful, especially when class assignments and tests intensify as the semester continues. Don’t forget you have access to awesome resources on campus!
