Spring 2021

What Students Should Know: COVID-19 and SUNY Adirondack

SUNY Adirondack’s first priority is the health and safety of our campus community, including its students, faculty and staff. The best way to maintain the safest environment possible throughout 2021 and beyond is for each of us to take steps to minimize the risks, for ourselves and all members of the SUNY community. This includes: 

  • wearing face coverings (masks)

  • hand washing

  • social distancing

  • participating in testing and tracing

  • completing daily screenings

  • being mindful of our surroundings and the impact we have

Any of us alone can spread this disease and cause harm to others. But all of us together can build a community that is safe and healthy, where educational success is possible.

 

Here’s what you need to know and do as a SUNY Adirondack student:

Stay informed

Read your SUNY Adirondack-issued email on a daily basis. Important campus updates, including testing requirements, campus health and safety information, and other important details will be sent to this email. Additionally, mySUNYADK, our student portal, is an important resource. 

Testing and isolation requirements

All students enrolled in at least one, in-person class, living on campus or participating in athletics will continue to be tested weekly. This surveillance testing is an important preventative measure to monitor the virus spread in our community. 

The following students are required to submit to Surveillance COVID testing every week:

1. Students with an in person course

2. Students living in the Residence Hall (even if they have all virtual courses)

3. Student Athletes

Failure to test can result in suspension from all in person activities or courses.  Thank you for your continued commitment to campus health and safety. 

Be responsible: It’s easy to do your part

Each of us can take small steps to protect ourselves and the campus community. Because COVID-19 is highly contagious, these simple measures apply both on and off campus:

  • Wear face coverings (masks) will be worn at all times when indoors except when an individual is alone in a private room, office or vehicle, or if seated at a table in a dining area and there is no one within six feet. When outdoors, face covering is required whenever social distancing of at least six feet cannot be achieved. Face coverings must fit snugly and cover the nose and mouth. The face covering policy is here. 

  • Regularly wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.

  • Stay home when you are sick or have potentially been exposed to COVID-19.

  • Practice social distancing at all times to reduce transmission.

If exposed, complete mandatory quarantine and isolation

Students who test positive for COVID-19, have been exposed to individuals who tested positive for COVID-19, or are informed by a state or local health department, or medical or campus official that they are “at risk” for having COVID-19 may be required to quarantine or isolate. This may include taking classes remotely, and not going to the dining center and other campus facilities. Students identified for quarantine and isolation (whether residential or non-residential) will have access to certain assistance, such as the delivery of food and medicine. They may also receive psychosocial, academic and/or other supports, as needed.

Daily screening and reporting

All students, employees and guests are required to complete a health screening questionnaire before entering any of the three campus locations. The Campus Clear App is an app available for an IPhone or Android; download it here

If any student is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, it is their responsibility to stay home and contact their health care provider. If a student has tested positive for COVID-19 using an off-campus administered test, they should immediately notify Kate O'Sick, SUNY Adirondack's Dean for Student Affairs, at osickk@sunyacc.edu 

SUNY maintains a comprehensive dashboard of COVID-19 testing and infection rate status across the system and at each campus. https://www.suny.edu/covid19-tracker/

Follow the rules or face disciplinary action

When the campus learns of a violation of the rules associated with COVID-19 safety, students may lose access to campus facilities and/or campus housing. Other disciplinary actions may be taken by the Student Conduct and/or Human Resources offices. Student conduct is governed by the campus code of conduct, located in the Student Handbook starting on Page 82. Minimum sanctions are outlined in the Uniform Sanctioning in Response to COVID-19 Student Violations. Consistent with SUNY policy, students who are partially or completely removed from the institution due to a violation are not eligible for refunds.

Take care of yourself, physically and mentally

We understand this is an exceptionally challenging time. SUNY has resources to help you get the support you need. 

Understand what’s being offered on campus and online 

The Spring 2021 schedule includes a mixture of in-person (25 percent of the schedule) and remote learning options for students. In-person instruction is primarily offered in courses requiring labs, equipment and applied learning requirements. The Spring 2021 schedule contains the following options:

Typical course offerings

  • Traditional (TR)  – Coursework meeting 100 percent on campus

  • Hybrid (HY) – Coursework meeting 50 percent (minimum) on campus; remaining asynchronous

  • Online (ON) – Coursework 100 percent asynchronous

New course offerings

  • Remote Synchronous (RS) – Coursework meeting 100 percent via Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate (BBCO) or WebEx

  • Remote Online (RO) – Coursework meeting 50 percent (minimum) via Zoom, BBCO or WebEx; remaining asynchronous

To support students' understanding of these new course offerings, a virtual campus type has been added. The virtual campus encompasses the RS and RO course options and indicates to a student that no campus access is required, but there is a day and time commitment.

When searching for a campus in Banner, one will see:

  • Queensbury – Traditional and hybrid courses offered everywhere except Saratoga

  • Saratoga – Traditional and hybrid courses only offered in Saratoga

  • Online – 100 percent asynchronous courses (for all sections of a course)

  • Virtual – Remote synchronous and remote online courses

Study spaces

SUNY Adirondack is offering study spaces for students throughout campus. The spaces are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. All COVID-related safety protocols must be followed. Students who have in-person classes scheduled closely with virtual courses are particularly encouraged to use the following spaces:

  • Eisenhart Hall, Rooms 109 (capacity 11); 115 (capacity 10); and 205 (capacity 13);

  • Student Center (capacity 6);

  • Wolf Den in Scoville Hall (capacity 5);

SUNY Adirondack Library

The library and open computer lab on the main floor in Scoville Learning Center will be available to students on a first-come, first-served basis, for studying and computer use. The hours are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday; Closed Saturday; and 1 to 9 p.m. Sunday. The IT Help Desk opens at 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.

Library and ITS staff will monitor the number of people to ensure less than 50 percent capacity at any given time. The tutoring areas can be used for studying. Masks must be properly worn at all times in the building, per college policy.

The library study spaces and book stacks on the upper-level area of the library will be closed until further notice. Students can study on the main floor, and in the IT computer lab and tutoring areas. 

SUNY Adirondack students, faculty and staff may borrow print books by contacting a librarian at librarian@sunyacc.edu to arrange to check out and pick up books at the circulation desk. (Electronic books are also available, from the search box on the library's home page.)  

More information regarding the SUNY Adirondack Library

Technology

The college has a significant number of laptops, Chromebooks and other technology to support students in a remote learning environment. Students seeking assistance should email advising@sunyacc.edu.

Accommodations for disabilities

Students who wish to disclose covered disabilities and receive reasonable accommodations for their disabilities should contact the Accessibility Services Office.

If we have to PAUSE, follow these rules

If the campus must switch to a two-week (or longer) pause, the following rules apply:

  • All classes will be delivered remotely. If you have been attending a class in person, your instructor will notify you via your college-issued email about how to access your class in a remote location. 

  • Residence Hall students will remain in housing, continue following the safe.smart.ready health and safety requirements and will be notified via your college-issued email of how to access dining services and other Residence Hall-specific restrictions (all residents were provided detailed information at check-in). 

  • Students will be expected to remain in housing during a pause in instruction. Exceptions may be granted with prior approval from the Director of Residence Life. 

If the pause in instruction is extended beyond a two-week period and the college is directed by its local health department or other state officials to suspend all in-person activity for the remainder of the semester, the college will do the following:

  • Email its plan to your college-issued email and post detailed information on the college’s COVID-19 website page.

  • All faculty members will invoke their continuity plans to move to remote instruction and notify you accordingly.

  • Notify students in the Residence Hall of next steps, including meal services, move-out plans (if necessary) and other relevant information. If the college closes, students will also be notified of any potential refunds for housing and related fees, and would be prorated based on time of occupancy and service usage. 

  • If the college is able to continue instruction in a remote environment, tuition refunds will not be available. 

Changes and updates

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic creates a fluid situation that may require unexpected changes in our response. Updates to scientific knowledge, public health guidance, or laws and regulations may mean SUNY and SUNY Adirondack have to make changes to our standards and rules, including those indicated above. We will try to minimize these changes and their impact. We will keep you informed of new developments.

Thank you in advance for everything you are doing and will do to make 2021 safe for you, your fellow students, and the campus community and beyond. 

 

Classes began Feb. 1 for the Spring semester. As in the Fall semester, approximately 25 percent of classes are in person.

We will continue our surveillance testing program for the Spring semester. Employees who will be regularly working on campus are strongly encouraged to participate in the surveillance testing program for the spring semester.

Please continue to adhere to the Safe.Smart.Ready protocols that have made our campus a safe place to work and study. 

SUNY Adirondack will continue to offer classes remotely and in person to help students achieve their academic goals on time and protecting the health of students, faculty, staff and the broader community.

The semester format takes into account the latest health and safety information from state and federal public health officials, recognizing the college’s diverse and primarily commuter student population. College officials incorporated lessons learned and academic outcomes witnessed during 2020, during which classes transitioned from on-campus to remote learning as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We ask all who enter any campus location to adhere to the following health and safety protocols:

CAMPUS ENTRY CHECKPOINTS: When you arrive at any of our three locations, you will be required to stop at a CampusClear checkpoint. Please allow a few extra minutes in your commute time to accommodate going through the checkpoints, which will be located at the Haviland Road entrance on the Queensbury main campus (opens at 6:30 a.m.), and at the front desks at our Saratoga site in Wilton (opens at 7:30 a.m.) and our Culinary Arts Center in Glens Falls. You must have a face covering on when entering the checkpoint.

HEALTH ASSESSMENT/SCREENING: You will be required to show proof of a health self-assessment to the checkpoint attendant. The most efficient way to navigate this checkpoint is to download the free CampusClear app available for smart phones. Learn how here. If you have not completed the digital app prior to arrival, you will be required to answer a series of assessment questions at the checkpoint. This may delay your entrance; please plan accordingly. Once cleared to be onsite, you will be given a wristband, which will provide you access to campus for that day only.

While on campus:

FACE COVERINGS REQUIRED: Properly worn face coverings are required for everyone indoors, except when alone in private offices or in single use spaces. They are also required outside if social distancing of at least 6 feet cannot be achieved. Read SUNY Adirondack's complete face covering policy.

PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING: Everyone inside buildings is required to follow the one-way directional signage, maintain 6 feet between you and all other people whenever possible, and follow any social distancing signage present in many locations.

WASH YOUR HANDS: Please remember to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. Hand sanitizer is also available throughout campus in every building for your use.

Learn more about SUNY Adirondack's protocols for visiting campus.

Watch a video about the screening process.


Reporting

If any student or faculty member is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, it is their responsibility to stay home and contact their health care provider. Students should immediately notify Kate O'Sick, SUNY Adirondack's dean of Student Affairs, at osickk@sunyacc.edu.


Cleaning

SUNY Adirondack is following Center for Disease Control and state and county health department guidelines for cleaning practices throughout campus. Common areas are thoroughly sanitized regularly. Hand-sanitizing stations are offered throughout campus. Signs reminding of proper hand-washing techniques are posted conspicuously.

If you are arriving to the Queensbury main campus via the public transit bus, you will be required to stop at the Welcome Desk in Warren Hall to show your CampusClear pass and receive a wristband before proceeding to your campus destination.

If you are being dropped off at the Queensbury main campus by another individual, the vehicle should proceed to the Haviland Road entrance. You will be required to show your CampusClear pass to receive a wristband. Other people in the vehicle who are not staying on campus will not be required to complete the CampusClear screening, however, they must remain in their vehicle at all times while on campus.

As part of the reopening of SUNY campuses across New York state, our schools are answering the call for transparency and public safety by providing statistics on the COVID-19 case count at each SUNY campus and community.

The SUNY Case Tracker is an up-to-date dashboard that provides data on COVID-19 testing and other vital information at each of our 64 colleges and universities. Individual campuses submit data daily, and the dashboard loads data hourly from the database. The data can be viewed on a system-wide or campus-by-campus level.
