Our Emergency Response Team continues to meet frequently to assess, plan and adjust our safety strategies.  I hope that you are referring often to our web page where many safety and academic support resources are available.

For my colleagues – If you are having challenges, our Employee Assistance Plan is here to support you, use your mynorthshore portal to access the Human Resources tile to learn more.  The NSCC community is here to lift up and support each other. 

To all -- Your wellness is of utmost importance to us. Stay strong, stay calm, stay inside and take good care of yourself.

Virtual hugs,
