All afternoon classes will be held as scheduled.

All non-essential university employees may leave at 2 p.m. with permission of their supervisors.

There will be ongoing evaluation of the road conditions. If a decision is made to close the university or delay the start of Friday classes, a notice will be sent tomorrow between 6-6:30 a.m.

Emergency service personnel and designated essential service personnel are expected to report to work to keep essential services and operations functioning. Dining services will be available even when the university closes because of inclement weather.

Please remember that all employees and students are expected to exercise individual judgment regarding their ability to travel safely when the campus is open and inclement weather is in the area. You are not expected to place travel for work or class attendance above your own individual health and safety.
