Enjoy the Thanksgiving Break

Friday, November 20, 2020

A Message from Kathleen Plinske, President, Osceola, Lake Nona and Poinciana Campuses

Next week, the College will close for Thanksgiving Break from Wednesday, November 25 through Sunday, November 29, 2020. My sincere hope is that you will have an opportunity to unplug, rest, relax and recharge. Whether it’s reading a good book, enjoying the outdoors, connecting safely or virtually with friends and family, getting in a good workout, finding creative expression through music or art, practicing mindfulness, or engaging in a hobby, I also hope that you will find time to do something that brings you joy.

While the holiday season can yield the extremes of emotions under normal circumstances, the pandemic may make this year’s particularly difficult for some of us. If you are struggling or feeling overwhelmed, please don’t hesitate to reach out for confidential support through our Employee Assistance Program. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week — even during the College’s holiday break.

I am thankful for each of you and everything you do to help our students succeed. Please take good care and stay well.
