Message from Our Team

Dear Parents and Supporters, 

This time of year our students are focused on setting goals, attending virtual career fairs, taking midterms and registering for classes. Remember that this is a great quarter to send some love to your student through snail-mail. Care packages, cards, photos of pets or even a little Valentine’s gift will brighten their quarter.

As the university continues to work to limit the spread of COVID-19, we encourage you to visit the Roadmap for a Healthy Campus website for updates and information about student testing requirements, daily health screenings, campus safety measures, winter quarter academics, health services and more.

Enjoy this month’s edition of Poly Parent News.

Sincerely,  
Parent and Family Programs Team
