Afternoon classes canceled


Edit: Originally, this article was titled ‘Campus to close this afternoon,’ but it was changed when we received word that the campus is not actually closing. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

After monitoring the weather, which predicts snow and sleet this evening and early tomorrow morning, University officials have decided to cancel Thursday’s afternoon classes.

A release from the UH Emergency Operations Center says that “the University of Houston System has canceled today’s evening classes – those beginning after 2:30 p.m. or later. Check you campus website for specific times. All athletic and extracurricular activities scheduled for Thursday also are canceled.”

Tentatively, the University is scheduled to reopen Friday at Noon, but students, faculty and staff are advised to check with their respective superiors, because classes tomorrow afternoon may be canceled at their discretion.

“University officials caution that faculty, staff and students should make a personal decision about their ability to travel safely to and from campus,” the release said. “Faculty and staff are urged to contact their supervisors to discuss their specific situations. Faculty will be asked to maintain a liberal absence policy because of the weather-related conditions.”

Student dining is expected to close early as well, but the food options inside UH housing are expected to stay open as scheduled. The Children’s Learning Centers, which usually close at 6 p.m., may close at 5 p.m. today, but a decision has not yet been reached.

Student activities, groups and organizations that meet during the evening are canceled as well. This includes The Daily Cougar, which will not print tomorrow.
