Good afternoon, TSDers! Just wanted to share this special announcement that I just made for SOC staff yesterday morning. After a couple of months working with Julie (HR) on SOC issues and Bobbie Beth's recent retirement, I have made my decision to appoint an interim Director to lead SOC for the next few months. It's my pleasure to let you know that Jennifer Prigge will be our interim Director! She will be a member of ELT. Congratulations, Jennifer. More information to follow later.

Happy Friday! I wanted to share this brief message before you go home for the weekend. Some of you may or may not have heard that today is actually Claire Bugen's last day on the campus. Don't worry! We do have a plan for TSD to have a special day for her to come back and celebrate her retirement. The information will be sent out soon. Even though she is not on the campus, she will still work with me. Thank you.

Good morning! Wanted to share 2 things with you today and I will also be doing this periodically. First thing is about the current situation we are dealing with...flu or could be confusing for all of us on what we may or may not have. We are currently working with the Health Center to come up with the most recent protocol for those who may be affected. Please bear with us as we are now collecting all important facts before we can let you know our steps. 
Also, another thing is about the parking spaces. We've noticed or received complaints that staff are parking in the spaces they are not assigned to or supposed to be parking there. Please avoid parking in the "reserved" space, "assigned" space, or even the spaces where the cones are. The cones are there for a reason whether they could be for the construction project or dumpsters to be dumped or removed. Please do not move cones. Also, remember not to park in the areas where they may say 15 minutes but ended up parking there for 2 or 3 hours. We wanted to address this now because some things will change after September 1st where we probably will have to enforce the parking issues such as towing the vehicles if not abiding by the rules. 
Please help us by reminding or spreading the words with everyone else. Thank you. Have a great day!
