Dear KSDS Family and Friends,
First, we want to thank you for the outpouring of support we have received during this difficult time!
We are taking the COVID-19 virus very seriously and are working hard to manage its impact. This
situation is ever changing, and we are committed to the health and safety of our employees, graduates,
and supporters. We are relying heavily on the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as local authorities. Based on their recommendations, KSDS will be doing
the following precautions until further notice:
• KSDS will not be giving tours or be open to the general public
• No visitors/volunteers will be able to be on campus for the safety of our staff
• While essential employees are at work, they are practicing social distancing and wearing masks
• KSDS is always taking precautionary measures, such as washing of hands, extra cleaning, and
additional sanitation of surfaces that are frequently touched
Although our office buildings are closed to the public, we are still working. We will be checking
voicemails, replying to emails, and receiving mail during this time, so please continue to reach out to us
and send donations, as you are able. We are especially grateful for even the smallest gift you may be able to give in this critical time.
As always, KSDS is committed to our mission and believes strongly in doing our part to help the greater
good. We will follow this plan until February 1, 2021, at which point it will be re-assessed. Again, thank
you for your support; we know these are very trying times for everyone.
We appreciate your understanding in this matter!
