Dear Members of the Anna Maria Community,

As mentioned in Tuesday’s email, senior management continues to work closely with all involved in the COVID-19 virus and its impact to the public. Everyone on campus has been working hard to ensure that we are prepared to operate remotely and each hour brings another decision to make in order to meet the ever changing complexity of this crisis.

The preparation for Anna Maria College has been excellent and you are all to be commended for your patience and hard work as we sorted through the necessary steps to meet the challenges for the remainder of the semester.

I encourage all faculty and staff who wish to work from home to do so. Please consult with your supervisor on plans for working remotely and assuring that realistic expectations are met to complete the work necessary to serve our students as best we can under the circumstances. If you prefer to report to campus, you are welcome to do so unless otherwise advised.

You will be receiving more information from Human Resources on employee benefits that we continue to support one hundred percent! I want to assure you that the College will do everything to make sure that you are not worried about your status or compensation in the weeks or, hopefully not, months ahead.

Thank you for all you are doing to help during this difficult time. I am always available to you for any questions or concerns, so please call me at any time.

Mary Lou Retelle
President of Anna Maria College
