Dear Aims Family,
I’m sure you’re looking forward to taking a break from your busy day-to-day schedules when the College closes for the Thanksgiving holiday. This year has created challenging circumstances in many aspects of our lives, and I know you may be feeling overwhelmed, worried, and exhausted. I hope you can find some time, even if it’s just a little bit, to rest and take care of yourself — you deserve to prioritize your wellbeing!
Also, I ask that you continue to practice care for our whole community by adhering to the guidance of public health experts. Take to heart the fact that your individual actions have large implications for everyone else around you.
When we return from Thanksgiving break, Aims will remain open and operational. While we’ve moved as many classes and operations as possible to remote formats, we are committed to staying open to serve students who need to come to campus to complete their classes and access services. That is why we need each of us to continue to follow health and safety protocols while on campus and out in the community.
Let’s keep everyone safe by remembering to adhere to these guidelines. These are the most effective ways to stop the spread of this fast-moving virus:

We are getting so close to the end of this semester, and with your help, we can make sure everyone at Aims can finish it out safely. You are doing an outstanding job keeping our learners at the center and forward momentum on our initiatives. You are all superstars! Have a happy Thanksgiving, take care of yourself, and stay vigilant!
Dr. Leah L. Bornstein
