The following outlines the timeline and protocols for accessing campus to gather belongings, as well as our plans to assist families that cannot come to campus.
Schedule for Campus Access
4/28 - 5/3: Sage West and Sage East
4/28 - 5/10: All other residence halls
4/28 - 5/10: Day Students
If you plan to come to campus to gather your belongings, you will need to schedule a time through the Deans’ Office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, if you are unable to return to campus, please share this information with the Deans’ Office. For those who cannot return to campus, the School will pack and store belongings, or coordinate shipping. While on campus, you will be required to wear a face mask and practice social distancing, and all visitors will need to complete the visitor declaration form in advance and bring it with you to submit at the front gate.
We’ve worked to create a schedule that balances the needs of our families with the safety of our community and the resources available on campus. With that said, we understand that a one size fits all solution will not work for all and are committed to partnering with you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Deans’ Office to discuss.
First- we encourage you to reach out to your FVS friends. Many people are taking advantage of time at home to connect with people who are near and dear to them, but also those with whom they may have lost touch. If you’d like help connecting with members of the FVS community, please contact Director of Development Margie Sherer at email@example.com and she would be happy to help. Share what you hear from your friends and if there’s a story to be told, please reach out. We’ve launched a new website , as well as the newly minted FVS Community Blog, and we welcome submissions of both news and alumni perspectives. If you have alumni news or blog ideas please contact Director of Development Margie Sherer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next, the global financial markets and economic engines have been hit hard and we will all face financial challenges—FVS included. With your continued support of our school we will weather this storm together. If you would like to make a gift to the FVS Annual Fund or endowment please contact Director of Development Margie Sherer at email@example.com or visit the FVS Annual Fund webpage.
Last, a personal appeal for all of us to do our part. Never before in our lifetimes have we been so empowered to write our own histories. The world's foremost experts and the experiences of communities around the world show clearly that social distancing and good hygiene can significantly slow the spread of COVID-19 and thus save lives. The choices we make as individuals moving forward will have a profound effect on the trajectory of this virus and the lives of those around us. I implore you to follow the guidance offered by the CDC and local governments, and support the greater good however hard it may be. Though we may not know what lies ahead, the strength of community and wisdom found in the FVS core values can help sustain and guide us. Courage, compassion, curiosity, open-mindedness, and self-reliance have never been more relevant.
