Due to recent decisions from K-12 schools to close next week, President Kibler is authorizing emergency paid leave for various categories of employees. Department heads including Directors, Department Chairs, and above are asked to report to work on Monday to begin strategizing plans for remote course delivery and business operations. Given the extraordinary situation, all others including student workers, will receive emergency paid leave for the week.

Dining services and residence halls will remain open for students living on campus. If department heads are unable to report to work, please contact your supervisor to discuss alternative means of communication. Next week we will engage in significant planning for university functions and will need input from each department. Please remain available to department heads who may need to contact employees to gather information regarding work functions.

Stay updated with additional information by going to www.sulross.edu and also check your Sul Ross email frequently for more communication from each division. We are all in this together and we want to ensure that input from each area is considered as make decisions in this unprecedented situation.
