College Family:

I am so proud of everyone in the Chipola College family who worked tirelessly and quickly to help re-open the college on Oct. 22 despite overwhelming challenges on our campus. I know that many students and employees have experienced devastating personal losses to their homes and workplaces at the same time.

The decision to resume classes was made in order to best help our students. After speaking with other college presidents who experienced catastrophic damages in the past, like St. Pete and Florida Keys, I know that re-opening as quickly as possible was the best plan to help students complete this semester successfully.

I understand that Chipola will not return to normalcy for some time, but it is important to move forward and do our best for our students. Deadlines may need to be adjusted, and I am confident that our faculty and staff will treat students with compassion and understanding while maintaining high academic standards.

Students with questions or concerns, should contact Student Services or visit for more information. Please view my video message on Facebook:

Thank you to all the employees and students of Chipola College. Together, we will get through this crisis and continue to make Chipola College one of the finest colleges in the nation.

Dr. Sarah Clemmons
