Thomas Fire update from Pacifica Graduate Institute
Monday, December 11, 2017 at 4:32 p.m.
Dear Pacifica Community and Friends,
This is an update on Pacifica Graduate Institute’s status during the state of emergency due to the Thomas wildfires. At the moment we remain closed until further notice; we are waiting for our campuses to be free of any danger. Both campus are free from harm, though there is significant amounts of ash in the area. Our email systems have been removed to safety so unfortunately email communication is currently unavailable. We are exploring ways to update our website. However, in the meantime if you need to be in contact with us, please respond via our social media channel and we will attempt to direct inquiries to appropriate staff.
Senior management continues to meet regularly by conference calls to assess the status of Pacifica during this crisis. Employees will not be asked to come to work until we can ascertain conditions are safe and secure. Employees will be notified by their supervisors as to the exact date to return to work on the campuses. Similarly our holiday party is postponed until the New Year.
In the meantime, we offer our gratitude to the brave fire fighters who are working ceaseless to contain the fire. We also join in support for all who have been impacted by these wildfires; the generosity in the local communities has been very moving to witness. Please stay safe!
With all good wishes,
President/CEO, Pacifica Graduate Institute
