Update to Staff - Status of Working Remotely at Evergreen

Dear Staff Colleagues,

In last week’s message to staff, I indicated that we anticipated some modification to the Governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order.  During yesterday’s press conference, the Governor stated that the “Stay Home/Stay Healthy” order is being extended; however, he did not indicate for how long.  We are hoping to learn more information from the Governor about the duration and modifications to the order over the next few days and/or weeks.

Legislative Update

Greetings,

On March 12, the Washington State Legislature wrapped up its planned 60-day session. Funding to combat the COVID-19 outbreak dominated the final weeks, as lawmakers deliberated how much to spend and how those appropriations should be allocated. Ultimately the legislature dedicated $200 million from the state’s Rainy Day Fund, which has been used for testing kits, hospital capacity, rural hospitals, medical supplies, and benefits for those who file for unemployment as a result of the virus.

Algebraic Thinking is an entry-level math class designed for students who are returning to math after a time away or for those who wish to strengthen their understanding of math before taking precalculus. In order to build a strong learning community, students will benefit from bi-weekly live virtual instruction with the faculty in addition to faculty developed videos and resources.   Algebraic Thinking develops problem-solving and critical-thinking skills by using algebra and mathematics to solve context-based problems.

On the vast expanse of frozen Arctic tundra and densely forested taiga south to Central Asia and its endless deserts, and from the border with western Europe to the Pacific Ocean lies Russia—the largest country in the world. The bulk of Russia’s vast Eurasian landmass consists of Siberia stretching eastward from European Russia to the Russian Far East where, to the southeast, the country shares borders with Mongolia, China, and North Korea. When and how did the Russians, recruiting the fearless and brute force of the Cossacks, take this land for themselves?
