Dear faculty and staff,   

Each Friday of spring quarter, the Evergreen Remote communications team will send a summary of updates about teaching and working remotely, including changes made to Evergreen’s COVID-19 webpage, messages that have been sent out, and information that is forthcoming. Our goal is to help you stay up-to-date with important information related to remote learning, teaching, and services and to reduce the volume of communications you are receiving. Please be sure to check your email filter and junk settings so you don’t miss a message. Here are this week’s updates:

Reminder to check your Out-of-Office and e-mail signatures – Many of us set out-of-office notifications and/or signature line changes when we first shifted to remote work in March. Please take a moment to check yours to determine whether it is still necessary/accurate.
