Eagle Rock’s 67th graduating class (ER 67) walked off stage with their diplomas at the end of the week before last, signaling the unofficial beginning of our winter trimester break. Students departed campus for break the next day, and the following week, staff wrapped up their final meetings and work for the trimester.
This is always a welcome break — and a most deserved break — for both students and many staff, giving us an opportunity to recharge our batteries before ER 68 commences in January of 2016. Some of us, however, are working here on campus while students are gone, as our schedules are not as directly connected to the flow of the academic trimesters. For the most part though, campus is a lot quieter, allowing for images such as the one below to be captured while no one’s around:
Our staff will return to campus on Monday, Jan. 4, 2016, and the following Sunday — Jan. 10 — we welcome back returning students who will instantly jump into action with house retreats planned for Monday, Jan. 11 through Wednesday, Jan. 13.
Three of our houses will participate in a Ski & Ride school at Vail Resort on Tuesday, Jan.13, and we’ll have a future post about that adventure soon.
If you find yourself with an urgent need to communicate with an Eagle Rock staff member during the break, we suggest you send an email to that individual. Keep in mind there’s no guarantee the email will be seen or answered during break, but many of our folks do check in on a regular basis.
Of course you can always check the new Eagle Rock website for answers to frequently asked questions.
