PSC Recovery Update: President Ed Meadows, 9/22 5:30 P.M.

To all employees,

This is an update on the condition of the College as of today.

  • The South Santa Rosa Center has power and internet service.
  • The Century Center has power and internet.
  • The Milton Campus is operational except for Building 4400.
  • The Pensacola Campus has power and internet and many of the buildings are in the process of being dried out and some have permanent roof damage. However, all buildings, with the exception of the Academic Computing Complex, can be occupied by staff.
  • The Warrington Campus has power but no climate control because the chillers are down. Buildings 3000 and 3200 are closed. Trees have been removed from buildings and walkways.
  • The Downtown Center has roof damage with major water damage and staff will be moved to the Pensacola Campus as soon as possible.
  • WSRE lost its upper roof and now has a temporary cover. They initially had generator problems but are now back on the air.
  • All classes are expected to resume on Monday, September 28, and spyglass is currently up for students.
  • Gulf Power, who set up their emergency operations on the Pensacola Campus, will be moved out tonight.

All employees, not related to COVID-19 consideration, will return to work tomorrow (Wednesday) morning. Employees who cannot return to their office because their building is not ready for occupancy will seek an alternate work space in coordination with their supervisor. Otherwise staff members are expected to take leave. Department Heads will coordinate with faculty on their work locations.

Although water intrusion mapping has been completed, many of our buildings may have water leaks that were not noted, so please report all water leaks you observe over the next several weeks.

Academic Affairs has worked out a plan to start classes on Monday, September 28. It is critical that faculty use the rest of this week to prepare for a modified class schedule. For most face-to-face and live online classes, the remaining Fridays in the semester will be used to make up missed classes. Student schedule conflicts will be addressed on an individual basis to ensure that the student can complete their courses on time this fall. We have also extended the withdrawal deadline for Session B classes from Thursday, September 24 to Friday, October 2.

We realize many of you may be dealing with transportation problems and house issues on top of COVID-19 issues, however, we must make every effort to return to work as soon as possible. Diane Bracken and her team have been working tirelessly to ensure that facilities are safe and ready for occupancy. Please be careful and watch your step when returning to some offices as there are blowers and fans drying out some areas in buildings.

This has been a trying year for all of us and I ask that you all be flexible with students due to the issues they are facing. Hurricane Sally is yet another stumbling block in our students’ paths to completion, and we must assist students in every way possible to be successful.

I hope that each of us will take a moment and be mindful of the blessings that we do have and continue to offer support and understanding for all members of our PSC family. I will keep you updated on our recovery efforts.

 

Ed Meadows
President

We recognize that Hurricane Sally caused damage to our communities and left many of you without power and internet service.

Employees are asked not to come on any PSC campus unless they have been notified to do so by their supervisors.
The administration is working with Emergency Management teams to assess damage, restore power, and clean up grounds and damaged buildings.

Some services at the College have been interrupted due to Hurricane Sally. We are working diligently to get them up and running. Thank you for your patience during this time.
Further updates will be sent as we know more or if recovery occurs sooner than expected.
Take care of yourself and your families.
