Eagle Rock’s Update on Preparation and Response to COVID-19

The health of Eagle Rock students and staff is a primary focus of ours. As we monitor the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease-2019), we are writing to keep you apprised of the actions and policies we are enacting to keep students and our staff protected.

In response to the rapidly changing COVID-19 circumstances — and in consultation with state and national agencies — we have placed restrictions on student and staff travel, as well as on visitors to our campus in Estes Park. We’ve also increased our diligence around campus in the areas of cleaning and sanitizing, and we’ve mounted a campaign to encourage hand washing and even healthier habits.

With all of this in mind, students returned home on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 with a plan for supporting remote learning so they can stay on track with their academic progress while at home as we wrap up our winter trimester.  

At this time, we anticipate starting the summer trimester as previously planned — on May 11. We expect before that time, that a lot more will be known about COVID-19, including whether our summer trimester start date will hold.

We are very grateful for the strength and togetherness of the Eagle Rock community. These are difficult times and we appreciate our community’s understanding and flexibility as we sort through this uncharted territory. We’ve been through tough times before, and without fail, they teach us important lessons and strengthen our resolve. The health and wellbeing of students and staff is one of our highest priorities and we’re holding that at the center of our decision-making.
