Mail room remains open, takes precautions against coronavirus

Amidst campus closure, student evacuations and work-from-home guidance, the mailroom staff in Palmer A soldier on. 

Delivery to student mailboxes at Hamilton center has been suspended, but between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays, students are still welcome to pick up and drop off their mail at the mailroom. However, due to so many students’ absence from campus and resulting security concerns, the mailroom will be locked and students must be buzzed in. Postal Service delivery typically happens around 11:30 a.m., so afternoon pick-up is preferable. Vice President for Finance and Administration Chris Kinsley urged students to respect appropriate social distancing with Mailroom staff. 

Due to Governor Ron DeSantis’ recent executive order mandating that individuals who are 65 or older stay home, Postal Manager David Steves is temporarily no longer running postal operations and Assistant Postal Services Manager John LeClaire has filled the position.

LeClaire reminded students living off-campus that the mailroom is “unable to forward UPS, FedEx, DHL, Amazon Prime and Amazon Flex packages to off-campus addresses.” These packages will remain in the mailroom for safekeeping until they can be picked up.

“We hope that everyone in the campus community stays healthy and safe, and we look forward to seeing you again!” LeClaire said. “You can reach us via email at, or by calling the Campus Mailroom at (941) 487-4247.”
