Announcement
The Absentee Shawnee Tribe is in the process of reopening the Shawnee Administrative Campus.  As previously stated, the AST Recovery Plan consists of 4 phases.  Phase one will begin on Monday, May 11th. Elected officials, department heads, and essential employees will return to campus to perform necessary functions. In the coming days, all other employees will be notified by their management team on expected return-to-work dates.   Regarding tribal members and campus access, the AST campus, although open, is running with a minimum number of personnel. We recommend if a tribal member requires assistance, please call or email a director with your question.  If a trip to campus is needed to remedy an issue, we will schedule an appointment to ensure the correct staff member is present and available to assist you.  We appreciate your consideration during this time.  Our priority is the health and well-being of our tribal members and employees, and we strongly believe opening in phases is in the best interest of everyone.  
Announcement
  The Absentee Shawnee Tribe initially issued a declaration of emergency on March 18, 2020. Based on public health information and emergency management data, we have extended the declaration to May 24, 2020.  AST officials are working on a four-phased approach to reopen the campus.   Phase 1 will open the complex to essential staff ONLY. Department heads will work with employees to determine who is deemed essential during this initial phase, and guidelines and restrictions will be strictly enforced. Currently, our target date for initiation of Phase 1 is May 11th.  The start dates for Phases 2, 3 and 4 will be dependent upon the successful implementation of Phase 1.   Again, we are taking this approach as a matter of caution.  Our primary objective is the protection of our employees and members.  We will continue to follow guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA).    Please continue to visit AST's website and Facebook page for updates on our COVID-19 Recovery Plan.
