Also, the WVU Libraries will close at 10 p.m.

With the exception of night classes and the libraries, however, the University expects to operate on a normal schedule, officials say. 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 Wednesday (Jan. 28), but stay tuned to local broadcast stations and WVU web sites ( www.wvu.edu , www.mix.wvu.edu ) for the latest information.
