April 9, 2020 Daily Chronicle

Dear CSN Family,

The focus of our message today is on our changing work environment and the important role of our Human Resources and CAPE teams. There have been several questions about when remote instruction and remote working will end and when employees can return to work. Keeping in mind the dynamic nature of our environment and that NSHE will provide definitive guidance based on health and safety considerations, the current plan calls for:

  • All academic instruction to remain online throughout the first summer term, through June 30.
  • Non-teaching staff to remain in their virtual work environment or on paid administrative leave status through the remainder of the spring semester.

We will of course keep the entire CSN family updated should details surrounding our virtual work schedule change.

HR reports that there are over 200 Telecommuting Agreement forms still outstanding. If you are working remotely and have not yet submitted your form to CAPE@CSN.edu, please do so no later than Monday, April 13. If you have already submitted a completed form, you can check your status on your CAPE My Learning dashboard. Once you are logged in, search for the Telecommuting Agreement (Temporary) – Checkpoint, to see if it has been approved and completed. Email CAPE@CSN.edu with questions.

Lastly, I would be remiss if I did not remind you of the special Board of Regents meeting scheduled for 1 p.m. Friday. You can view the meeting online via NSHE’s website. As I said in yesterday’s email, the Board will hear presentations on initial budget reduction plans for all NSHE institutions.

Thank you all for your hard work and for remaining Vegas Strong and CSN Proud.

Stay Safe and God Bless.
