Remote Operations 12.22-23.23.

Due to freezing temperatures, all campuses will be closed on Thursday, December 22, and Friday, December 23.

Due to negative temperatures and wind chill forecasted for Thursday and Friday, all CCD locations will shift to remote operations on 12/22/22 and 12/23/22.

The decision to shift to remote operations was made due to the limited ability to provide safe conditions on campus and the travel conditions to and from campus. The final decision-making authority to move to remote operations for the Auraria campus resides with the leadership of the Auraria Higher Education Center (AHEC), University of Colorado Denver (CU Denver), Metropolitan State University Denver (MSU Denver), and Community College of Denver (CCD). Due to proximity, decisions regarding the Advanced Manufacturing Center (AMC) follow the decisions made for the Auraria campus. Community College of Denver relies on its partnership with the Lowry campus facilities and security departments and Lowry campus leadership to inform this decision.

What does this mean for students (IF there are any classes):

Students should check their course in D2L for information about alternative delivery of the day’s course content or check with their faculty. Students attending online/asynchronous course sections are expected to attend class and complete assigned activities as scheduled.

What does this mean for employees:

Regular employees are required to work from an appropriate remote location in the event the College shifts to remote operations during their normal work hours. Employees who are unable to work from an appropriate remote location must communicate directly with their supervisor and Human Resources.

During campus closures or remote operations, temporary employees (including retirees hired into temporary positions) and student employees are not eligible for administrative leave. Temporary employees and student employees whose duties and responsibilities can be completed from an appropriate remote location will receive instruction from their immediate supervisor and are eligible for pay for hours worked if approved by the supervisor.
