Sohan Ramgoolam
43:43
HI there! Thank you for having this meeting1 Much appreciated! I do have a few questions along the way
Paul Ortiz
44:06
If possible, when the meeting is over we need to speak with someone about communication. We believe we have not received several important communications via email concerning details such as choosing elective classes, room assignments, etc. We feel a little in the dark. Thank you in advance.
Linda Velto
46:31
Mr. Ortiz, after the meeting I can check the contact information we have for you and your student to make sure it is up to date. Rooming assignments just went out late Friday afternoon.
M Fitch
47:36
Is Brewer Hall air conditioned or should students bring fans for their rooms?
Kristen
48:34
Can two parents come on move-in day but only one inside at a time?
Paul Ortiz
48:44
Thank you. We have very little communications and we were concerned.
Linda Velto
48:51
All of the residence halls are air conditioned, but the rooms do not have individual thermostats. A small fan might be helpful for students who might like it cooler than the system is set.
Sneha Shah-Coltrane
49:31
Kristen - both parents come outdoors - but only one will be permitted into the dorm to limit our bubble. Thanks for understanding.
Gerrick Suggs
49:41
All Residence Halls are air conditioned.

50:27
Will the kids be able to come home on the weekend?
Rachel VanWinkle
50:33
My child has a medical appointment that she cannot miss. What is the policy for re-entry?
Linda Velto
50:48
Packages can be mailed using the address sent in their rooming assignment, which also appears in the handbook
Iris Gonzales
50:53
When you stated in the handbook that there would be no housekeeping, does it mean that we would have to clean our own rooms/bathrooms with cleaning supplies?\
Sneha Shah-Coltrane
51:13
If you have a medical need, please contact the office to talk more directly.
Shiny S
51:34
Will students have access to clothing irons (since it was stated in the handbook that students could not bring irons)? What about curling irons/straighteners for hair?
Steven Vu
51:35
For moving day, will we be told what floor of the buildings our dorm rooms will be on ahead of time?
Linda Velto
51:52
Regarding students leaving on weekends-- students are required to enter a 5-week bubble and will not leave campus for the entire time.
rachel
52:24
Great!!
Hurtado Family
52:24
Is that the same policy for the teachers working wit the students?
Sohan Ramgoolam
52:29
Maybe a rather odd question, sorry: Will there be a laundry service one can pay for? Or a cleaning cleaning service? Also, wondering if a kid is allowed to order food from Doordash/UberEats, etc? If so, what is the cut off time, and where r they allowed to pick it up from? AKA a common area?
Evan Friday
52:38
Is there a place where packages can be dropped off instead of mailed? We have family that is local and I would like the option of not incurring the expend of shipping should our son need something.
Evan Friday
52:52
expense
Linda Velto
52:55
Floor of the building: the first number of their room number is the floor number. For example Brewer 123 is on the first floor, 223 is on the 2nd floor
Sneha Shah-Coltrane
53:06
Yes - staff and faculty have the same testing and screening -- the only difference is that some may leave campus.
Steven Vu
53:12
Ok thank you!
M Croom
53:16
For parent bringing student to move in. Can more than one parent come, but only one go in dorm with them to help move in? Sorry, was wanting to clarify this.
Sneha Shah-Coltrane
53:57
Yes, more than one person can come... but they must stay outdoors. Only one with the band will be allowed indoors.
lisalaney
54:42
21 year old sister needs to do the drop off as parents are out of town; we have signed all the documents as the parents/guardians — nothing in the emails indicated a parent is necessary for the drop off.. just verifying this won’t be a problem, thank you
M Croom
55:08
Ok, for the parent that does not go in the dorm, do they have to be covid tested, etc or only one helping with move into dorm?
Linda Velto
55:18
Re: package drop-off-- parents can come to the gatehouse at Meredith and call the GSE office. A staff member will come to the gatehouse to meet you.

Thank you! What would be the hours someone would be available at the GSE office for a package to be dropped off?
Evelin M.
58:16
When we're moving in is it alright to have two family members drive us to the campus? Only one would actually get out of the car to help with moving in, and they'd both be fully vaccinated. I'm asking because one of them is more confident driving long distances, but can't carry heavy things.
M Fitch
58:35
We saw her at audition I think?
Gerrick Suggs
58:55
Off-site activities will not occur, But we will have many On-Site activities outside of the academic studies for the students to enjoy.

Sepcific needs for Area I were sent in faculty letters... if nothing was listed - I'd recommend normal supplies - paper, pencils, etc...
Evelin M.
01:02:25
Ok, thank you!
Linda Velto
01:02:26

Sneha Shah-Coltrane
01:02:44
Yes, students may bring food and snacks.
Jennifer Wadsack
01:03:01

If a student is suspected of having COVID-19 based on the presents of symptoms they will be put on isolation and a rapid test will be done. The rapid test will be confirmed with a antigen test or PCR/molecular test. Unvaccinated room mates will also be quarantine and given a rapid test. If a confirmed positive COVID-19 result is confirmed students will need to go home. Vaccinated room mates will be observed for symptoms.
