Worsening conditions in seasonal weather, most notably during the winter months, may affect everyone's ability to get to campus. Students who are unable to get to campus for class or work, should contact their faculty or supervisors. Staff and faculty facing challenges in reporting to or performing work because of weather-related conditions in your area, should communicate directly with their supervisor or appropriate administrator.
