Due to the predicted snowstorm moving through our area beginning late Friday evening through Saturday and the potential for very hazardous driving conditions, all in-person classes on Saturday, January 29, will transition to being held online or remotely.
Additional information on the virtual format for each class will be provided directly by your individual instructor.
Faculty have been asked to prepare for Online or Remote sessions in the event of in-person meeting cancellations. These options will be determined by the Faculty member and all questions should be directed to the Faculty teaching each course section. Faculty also have been asked to be very understanding and accommodating of the individual situations of their students who may have difficulty managing these alternative online or remote class meetings on short notice.
The COVID-19 Booster clinic scheduled for Saturday has been moved to Sunday, and will now start at 10 a.m. All appointment times have been advanced by one hour (9 a.m. Saturday appointments are now 10 a.m. Sunday, etc.).
Campus services for residential students will be operating on modified schedules tomorrow. Separate messages will be sent from the Peterson Library, the Beckerman Recreation Center, and Dining Services regarding their operational status. Schedule modifications can also be found on myCharger. Residential students should be prepared to move their vehicles when instructed to do so, to facilitate snow clearing operations.
Please note that only those employees, as previously determined by their respective department leaders, should report to campus unless otherwise directed by their supervisor. All other employees should continue to fulfill the requirements of their role remotely.
Students who live in the community and have vehicles must follow the local snow parking orders or their vehicles will be ticketed and towed. West Haven has issued a snow emergency prohibiting on-street parking from 8 p.m. Friday evening through 8 a.m. Sunday. Please visit the City of West Haven website for more information.
