Civic Engagement Project: A required part of URI101 is that the class participates in a community service project.
The plan is: We will be doing a weekend event on Sunday, October 18th from 1:00-4:00. We will work with the West Kingston Elementary School 5th graders with their homework, participate in some other activities, and then head down to the men's soccer game that is on campus that day at 1:00pm. (But this could change.)
Illness Due to Flu
The H1N1 Flu Pandemic may impact classes this semester. If any of us develop flu-like symptoms, we are being advised to stay home until the fever has subsided for 24 hours. So, if you exhibit such symptoms, please do not come to class. Notify me at 874-4439 or email@example.com of your status, and we will communicate through the medium we have established for the class. We will work together to ensure that course instruction and work is completed for the semester.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have posted simple methods to avoid transmission of illness. These include: covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; frequently washing your hands to protect from germs; avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth; and staying home when you are sick. For more information, please view www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/habits.htm. UrI information on the H1N1 will be posted on the URI website at www.uri.edu/news/H1N1, with links to the www.cdc.gov site.
