Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)

FFCRA is legislation created to provide financial support to individuals should they need to take leave for specific COVID-19 related reasons.  This legislation is effective April 1st – December 31st, 2020.

Please carefully review these documents.  If you have any questions regarding your eligibility for paid leave benefits under FFCRA and how these benefits coordinate with any existing sick, personal, vacation, or sick leave pool benefits you may have, please contact Kim Kidd, HRIS & LOA Administrator, at kiddk@lssc.edu or Pam Fletcher, Director Employee Relations/Equity & Diversity, at fletchep@lssc.edu.

Travel

Student and Employee Personal Travel

Effective immediately, we are asking all members of our College community (students, employees and on-campus partners) to self-report their travel and possible exposure to COVID-19.
Anyone who travels by airplane to any destination, travels out-of-state, travels to a high-risk location identified by the CDC, travels on a cruise ship, or believes they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should report this to LSSC through this online form.

The College will review your information and plan appropriately for any necessary self-isolation periods.

College-Sponsored Travel

Effective immediately, the College is limiting non-essential travel and reviewing all travel plans to limit the spread and risk of exposure to COVID-19. College-sponsored student travel and all out-of-district employee travel will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
