I am sending this email to share the new food / drink policy for the entire lower level and classrooms (see attached). This policy will be enforced throughout every room in the lower level including simulation rooms, debriefing rooms, skills lab, student lounge and hallways. The simulation lab has only been opened for a few months and we have experienced a high volume of spills, gum residue and carpet stains in our new Schwartz Lab. These spills and gum deposits are damaging our new multi-million dollar Schwartz lab. The cleaning team in the Schwartz lab (Valerie, Dillard and Wynette) work very hard to make sure the space is clean and ready for your use. Effective immediately, we are implementing the attached food and beverage policy for the classrooms and Schwartz lab.
Also I want to remind you that Dean Weaver and the leadership at the CON turned room 149 on the first floor into a lunch room that has a microwave and tables so you can eat in this room as well as the first floor lobby. Please let me know if you have any questions. The simulation staff, CON faculty and cleaning team will start asking students who are not following the policy to either throw out their food / drink or return to the first floor until they are finished with their food / drink.
