Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

We continue to regularly assess and take into consideration the recommended COVID-19 safety guidelines from the Florida Department of Health. The personal safety of students, faculty and staff is our top priority. 

Please “Spread Kindness, Not Germs.” If you are sick or exhibiting any symptoms, stay home.

All SCF campuses are open to the public, masks are optional, and the COVID-19 vaccine is highly recommended but is not required.

Please bring your vaccine card if receiving the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna's primary series or if you are seeking a booster. A legal guardian must accompany children 12-17 years of age.
