Guatemalan Worry Dolls originated in Mayan history.

The latest school guidance from Columbus Public Health indicates that vaccinated students will not typically need to quarantine if exposed to COVID. Additionally, according to Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s website (nationwidechildren' "Getting yourself and your child vaccinated are important steps in protecting against infection and our return to normalcy. Having your child vaccinated can help:

Protect your child from severe COVID-19.

Protect loved ones by stopping the spread of the virus.

Return to traditional in-person school, sports and other extracurricular activities.

Eliminate mask wearing requirements.

Reduce the spread of the virus within the community."

Attention Early College Students and Families

On Tuesday, September 14th, 2021, Ohio Dominican University joined other colleges and universities locally and nationally in implementing a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all students, faculty and staff.  Our Early College students and Early College counselors are members of the ODU community and are included in this mandate that requires full vaccination proof by November 15th, 2021.  Students currently enrolled in classes may finish classes this semester regardless of vaccination status, but without proof of vaccination, they will be unable to continue next semester.  This includes students who take classes in person or online.  All proof of vaccination will be completed on ODU’s campus beginning September 20th, 2021.

[email protected] is committed to keeping everyone safe and healthy. To assist in this effort, we are working with local pharmacies to offer a mobile vaccine clinic at school during the school day.  As more details become available for students to take advantage of a convenient time and place to get vaccinated, we will communicate that information to you.  We hope making this available will encourage anyone who is not yet vaccinated to do so.  The vaccine clinic will be open to all [email protected] students.  We recognize that this mandate may change a student or family’s interest in continuing in the TCS Early College program at ODU, and we ask that you talk with Ms. Hatch as soon as possible about adjusting your academic plan for future semesters to ensure you are meeting graduation requirements without ODU if you choose not to get vaccinated.

Information on ODU’s decision to mandate vaccination, as well as answers to frequently asked questions can be found here:  ODU is offering limited medical and religious exemptions.  Applications must be filed directly with ODU no later than October 15th, 2021.  Information about exemptions can be found at the link above.  

Please let us know if you have any questions.  Stay safe.

Jane Hatch and Allie Konet
