Regularly scheduled classes that begin before 12 p.m. are canceled. Regularly scheduled classes that begin at 12 p.m. or after will be held as scheduled. Faculty should notify students if a class will not be held after 12 p.m. as scheduled. Students who are unable to attend class after 12 p.m. should notify their instructor prior to their absence. In all cases, an individual's safety should be a prime consideration when making decisions to attend scheduled events.
All emergency employees must report to work on time. All other employees should report to work at 12 p.m. or their normal scheduled start time if later. Employees who cannot report to work must follow their department's normal call-in procedures to discuss the needs of the unit and individual circumstances. Employees not reporting to work may use accrued paid leave and should report their time away as scheduled leave.
