Spring 2022 Check-in Information and Things to Know

January 6, 2022

Dear Huntingdon Students:

Have I mentioned lately that I can’t wait to have you back on campus?

In preparation for check-ins this weekend, let me give you an idea of what to expect.  The overwhelming majority of students plan to check-in on Saturday or Sunday. Students checking in on Saturday and Sunday should report to Drum Theater.  Check-in on Saturday and Sunday will last from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.   If you are part of a group checking-in on Friday, please report to Roland Arena at 10 a.m.  For those needing a late check-in on Monday, you can report to Roland Arena between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

As part of check-in you will do 4 things:

  1. Turn in a signed copy of the Spring 2022 Community Compact.  This was included in the Spring 2022 health and wellness protocols (pdf) and I’m attaching a copy for you.  We will have copies available for you to sign at check-in if you don’t bring this with you.
  2. All students regardless of your vaccination status are required to participate in re-entry COVID testing. There are 2 ways you can satisfy the COVID testing requirement:

    Option A – You can test at Huntingdon when you arrive at check-in.  We will administer a rapid antigen test and have the results of your test in 15 minutes.  This will be offered at no cost to students.

    Option B – If you are traveling from a distance and don’t want to risk testing positive upon arrival at Huntingdon, you can have a COVID test administered by a healthcare professional the day before your check-in and bring documentation of that negative COVID test with you.  The documentation you provide must include the following 5 things — your name, your date of birth, the date of the test, the type of test administered, and the result of the test. You can provide either an antigen test or a PCR test, but it should be a test administered by a healthcare professional at a place like a pharmacy or an urgent care facility.  You cannot buy a test kit and administer the test at home and have that satisfy this requirement.   Only tests administered the day before you check-in will be accepted in lieu of testing at Huntingdon.  For those of you traveling far distances to campus, I especially encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity.

  3. Residential students will get the keys to their residences.
  4. Students can collect their Spring semester textbooks and other information resources at the Scarlet and Grey Shop.

Here are some additional things to know in advance of arriving:

  • Your patience and positive spirit are appreciated.
  • Masks are required throughout the check-in process.
  • If you arrive after our check-in window, you will not be allowed access to your residence hall unless you have documentation of a negative COVID test from that day or the day before.
  • No student will be allowed to attend in-person classes until they have checked-in and cleared the re-entry COVID testing protocol.

If you are not feeling well and are showing symptoms of illness, do not come to campus.  Notify Nyree Conville at healthandwellness@hawks.huntingdon.edu and seek direction on your next steps.

If you have tested positive in recent days or test positive in preparation for coming to campus, notify Nyree Conville at healthandwellness@hawks.huntingdon.edu.

If you have updated your vaccination status since the Fall semester ended, send a copy of your vaccination card to healthandwellness@hawks.huntingdon.edu.  Regular testing for all unvaccinated students will begin on Monday, January 10 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Roland.

Let me know if you have any questions.  READY TO SEE YOU AT HUNTINGDON!

Hawk ’em.
