Campus Update, Nov. 28

Email from President Becky Rowley to faculty, staff and students on Nov. 28.

Dear SFCC Community,

Your safety continues to be Santa Fe Community College’s highest priority. In order to minimizing the spread of Covid-19 on our campus, I am announcing that SFCC will close for two weeks, beginning Monday Nov. 30.

The campus is currently closed for Thanksgiving break and will remain closed through Dec. 12, the end of the fall semester. The college will close for winter break, Dec. 21 to Jan. 3, 2021.

Those currently taking part in online classes should experience no additional disruptions over the next couple weeks, while the semester concludes. Those enrolled in on-campus allied health classes or licensure trades programs should check in with their instructors for more information on these final weeks of the fall semester.

Faculty and staff who have been working on campus should check in with their supervisors on details related to their duties.

The two-week closure includes the Santa Fe Higher Education Center, and the William C. Witter Fitness Education Center, which remains closed. Kids Campus will stay open under its current limited capacity.

I will provide additional updates on the status of the college as they emerge. The college continues to offer the majority of its classes online, a necessity that I foresee extending at least through spring semester 2021.

The College provides updates on confirmed positive Covid-19 tests within the campus community on our Covid-19 webpages.

I want to sincerely thank SFCC students, faculty, and staff for their ongoing commitment to keeping one another safe during these unprecedented times. I wish you success on the completion of the fall semester.


Becky Rowley, Ph.D.
SFCC President
