I pray that this message finds you and your families safe.
Due to continued poor air quality in Portland, our modified campus operations will remain in effect on, Tuesday, September 15. With limited exception, any employee whose work responsibilities require them to be outside are asked to stay at home tomorrow and not come to work. For such employees, tomorrow will be considered a paid holiday. Further, any in-person instruction/activity scheduled for tomorrow must be conducted indoors; no outdoor instruction/activities are permitted.
All employees are once again encouraged to consult the Oregon Health Authority’s Wildfire and Smoke website for additional information on staying safe.
Further updates on the University’s operating status will be provided as necessary. Along with the Holy Cross Community at UP, I am praying for you, your loved ones, and all who have been impacted by the wildfires.
