Dear Students and Parents,
Today, we are pleased to announce the release of IMSA’s Repopulation Plan. The guidance details how IMSA will bring back students and colleagues when it is safe to do so, including precautions and protocols that ensure the health, safety and well-being of our community. Please watch my video above to hear my thoughts on a proposed timeline for repopulation.
The Transition Task Force, charged with designing a Fall 2020 Remote Working and Distance Learning Plan that launched on July 31 and now the Titan Pact: Repopulation Plan, has been advised by national, state and regional health officials, sister schools, universities, a student working group, and parent, student and employee surveys to deliver a strategically-driven and science-based repopulation process. It continues to move us forward on an intentional path of preparedness for returning to our IMSA home. These guidelines are based on intelligence about COVID-19 that is known today. However, the pandemic continues to evolve rapidly, requiring us to be watchful of new information that may require us to evaluate and update the “what if” scenarios contained herein.
Thank you for your continued patience and support during these unprecedented times.
José M. Torres, Ph.D.
The IMSA Emergency Student Relief Fund has been established with the hope to provide financial assistance to our community’s low income students for essentials like food, rent, and utilities, as well as access to technology for remote learning.
We are united as One IMSA caring for others with One Heart.
