from Sunita V. Cooke, MiraCosta College superintendent/president:
last weeks of a semester are always stressful for students and faculty with
final projects, papers, and exams looming. This year, unfortunately, our
community has also been impacted by devastating wildfires that steadily burn
uncontained, damaging property and threatening lives. The unusually dry and
windy conditions have made it even more challenging to contain the impacts of
these fires in north county San Diego. Many of our students and employees have
been evacuated, and some have lost their homes. Our hearts go out to all those
impacted by the fires, heavy smoke, and evacuations. Our college stands ready
to assist as an evacuation center if the need should arise.
there is no immediate threat to any of our four campus sites, MiraCosta College
closed at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 7 and will remain closed until
dangerous fire conditions and air quality improve. We anticipate opening on
Monday December 11 for finals week. An assessment will be made Sunday afternoon
by college leadership in conjunction with local authorities.
has been an extremely difficult time for those who have been displaced or are
uncertain about their safety. Despite this, many employees have expressed
gratitude for all those who have reached out to them and offered support, and
encouragement, and even a place to stay. I am also grateful for college leaders
in San Diego and Riverside who have reached out to offer support and assistance.
are immensely grateful for our first responders and volunteers serving to
safeguard lives and property! Fires across many parts of our state this
year have challenged our colleges, students, employees, and communities.
Our thoughts are with all of those who have been impacted by fires,
smoke, and evacuation and we wish everyone safe outcomes. We will continue to
communicate about the situation and hope for a speedy containment and swift and
effective recovery efforts.
you for your support,
