West Virginia University classes are canceled beginning at 5 p.m. this evening (Wednesday, March 7), on the advice of transportation and safety officials.

With the exception of night classes, however, the University expects to operate on a normal schedule, officials say. The WVU Libraries and Student Recreation Center will remain open, and the PRT and/or buses will be operating.

Employees are to report to work as scheduled or requested. If weather conditions prevent employees from getting to work or getting to work on time, they should notify their supervisor as soon as possible and prior to the start of the shift. Supervisors are asked to work with employees who feel they need to leave work early due to the weather conditions. Employees who do not work their full scheduled shift may take annual leave, compensatory time off, or at the supervisors discretion, may be permitted to make up those hours. Any questions about scheduling issues should be addressed to an employees supervisor.

WVU anticipates a normal opening on Thursday (March 8), but stay tuned to local broadcast stations and WVU web sites (www.wvu.edu,www.mix.wvu.edu) for the latest information.
