Greetings Golden Eagles,

Welcome back! We’re excited to begin the fall semester — a semester that undoubtedly will be unlike any other. While there are significant challenges ahead, we’re confident that you will embrace your responsibilities (wear face coverings, socially distance, frequently wash hands, increased disinfecting) and help us Protect the Nest.

A few key notes to remember as the semester begins:

Check Blackboard Before Attending First Classes

In order to maintain social distancing, many classes will meet on specific days. For instance, if your class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays, you may be required to physically meet on Tuesdays and remote in on Thursdays. Please make sure you go into Blackboard for each course to determine what days you are to physically be in class. You should also check your Brockport email for this and other information related to in person sections. Do not got to any class without checking Blackboard first.

Face covering pick-up

SUNY Brockport is supplying each student with two re-usable face coverings and a small bottle of hand sanitizer. A special thank you to Brockport Student Government for having the face-coverings branded. Residential students will find these materials in their rooms. Off-campus students can pick up their PPE (personal protective equipment) at The SERC on the following dates/times:

  • Sunday, Aug. 30: 10 am – 1 pm
  • Monday, Aug. 31 and Tuesday, Sept. 1: 7 am – 6:30 pm

ID must be provided. A drive-thru option is available. Drive around Tuttle via Parking Lot V and enter into the loop in front of SERC. If you miss your pick-up time, you can pick it up at the Conrad Welcome Center using the drive-up window.

Get your flu shot!

An important part of the Protect the Nest pledge is to get a flu shot in an effort to help keep our community safe. We’re making it easier than ever, as Wegmans Food Markets will host a flu clinic for our community in The SERC. Please make an appointment to get your flu shot on the following dates/times:

  • Monday, Sept. 14: 9 am – 3 pm
  • Tuesday, Sept. 15: Noon – 6 pm
  • Wednesday, Sept. 16: Noon – 6 pm
  • Thursday, Sept. 17: 9 am – 3 pm
  • Friday, Sept. 18: 9 am – 3 pm 

Thank you for doing your part to Protect the Nest this semester. Together, we can do this.
