August 11, 2021 – Santa Fe College officials are monitoring the track of Tropical Storm Fred as its projected course takes it toward the west coast of Florida. Although at this point, the National Hurricane Center is not expecting much strengthening of the storm, all storms anywhere in the vicinity of the Santa Fe College service district of Alachua and Bradford counties have the potential to bring wind, rain and inclement weather.
SF faculty and staff are encouraged to go to eStaff and verify that their emergency contact information is up to date. Students can also update their emergency contact information at eSantaFe. In the event of a closure, or other emergency information, the college will send notifications through text messages, phone calls and other means to alert the college community. SF’s Human Resources provided information earlier this summer on how faculty and staff can verify their information is updated and accurate.
The college community is also encouraged to make any preparations necessary, not just for this storm but throughout hurricane season. Use the ready.gov webpage for additional storm preparation information.
All official updates from the college concerning this storm will be posted on the SF Weather Alerts web page.
