As colleges across California shuttered their campuses and sent most students home last week, one campus in the Bay Area is requiring its students to return — amid a pandemic — and clean out their dorm rooms.

On March 18, Evette Castillo Clark, St. Mary's College dean of students, emailed parents and students that the Moraga campus was closing and students needed return and get their dorm rooms cleaned out by April 14.

Educators can temporarily give Creative Cloud access to distance learners

  Educators can temporarily give Creative Cloud access to distance learners Students who are stuck at home due to coronavirus concerns don't have as many resources as a school could provide. For example, schools that teach graphics and video skills often have educational licenses for Adobe's Creative Cloud, which are assigned to individual computers, rather than students. In other words, students can't simply open up Photoshop from their own devices. To help educators and learners during school closures, Adobe is allowing IT admins to grant temporary at-home access to its suite of Creative Cloud apps, from now until May 31st.

Some parents are livid.

"This is so reckless," said Karen Lane, who lives in Littleton, Colo. Her daughter, Madison, returned home the day the six counties announced the shelter-in-place. She's reluctant to send her daughter back to campus.

"The whole point (of the order) is to keep us from being mobile. Does anybody really need their comforter or coffee mug that badly?" she said.

Verizon will provide free internet to students in Los Angeles

  Verizon will provide free internet to students in Los Angeles Verizon will provide free internet access to all students who need it in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), the company announced today. This could help as many as 100,000 students continue to learn while schools are closed. Reliable internet access is critical during this pandemic, but Verizon (Engadget's parent company) is a little late to step up. Spectrum is offering free internet installation and service to students and their families. Comcast is making its Internet Essentials program free for new, qualifying customers for 60 days, and it is boosting broadband speeds for existing Internet Essentials customers.

The sessions were started by students who wanted to fill Harvard's sex ed gap. In fact, she tailored her program to fit the request of the Harvard Sex Week organizers to help students learn how to communicate their desires to try out a fetish with their partners.

On March 24, the school's medical director, Rachel Snowden, responded to Lane by email.

She explained that the college was not only "in constant communication" with county health officials about their plans, but that other Bay Area colleges, such as Stanford University and Santa Clara University, were following similar procedures.

She suggested Lane connect with local students or families to assist with moving items out of Madison's dorm room, if Lane wasn't comfortable sending her daughter back to clean.

"This might be a helpful option for your family to consider," wrote Snowden.

A county health spokesman told the Los Angeles Times he hadn't heard about the situation until he was contacted by the newspaper, on Tuesday. Officials from Stanford and Santa Clara University said their universities were not requiring students to return to campus to clean their rooms in the near-term.

"We have told undergraduate students they should not return to campus at this time due to the ongoing shelter-in-place order," said Ernest Miranda, a spokesman for Stanford.

Robin Reynolds, the associate vice president for auxiliary services at Santa Clara University, said her university has told students to return between May 1 and May 8 to clean out their dorm rooms.

However, "we know the situation is fluid, so that may change," she said.

A spokesman for St. Mary's said the request was in line with two travel exemptions in Contra Costa County's shelter-in-place: one that allows for essential travel and another for distance learning.

"Saint Mary's College of California is acting to prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19, and working hard to adapt to changing circumstances in response to the impacts of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic," wrote Michael McAlpin, the college's director of media relations, in an email.

Asked if St Mary's request violated the order, Fischer, the Contra Costa County spokesman, declined to provide an opinion.

"We can't be in a position to adjudicate best practices, whether or not, in a particular case, it is good for certain students to follow, or not follow, the instructions," he said.

As to what will happen to Madison's belongings if she doesn't return, St. Mary's spokesman declined to comment.

But for Lane, it's pretty clear: "What's a thousand dollars worth of items when the choice comes down to my daughter's health, and that of others?"
