Instructors can opt to hold their classes remotely on Friday due to inclement weather, Executive Vice President for Planning and Policy Russell Carey ’91 MA’06 announced in an email to the Brown community. The email also announced that testing centers and administrative and academic offices will be closed Friday.
The Sharpe Refectory and Verney-Woolley Dining Hall will continue to operate on normal dining hours while other dining halls may be closed or have modified hours, according to the announcement.
Staff members designated as essential “because their responsibilities include non-deferrable services” are required to report to work “as directed by management,” Carey wrote. The email also advised members of the community to avoid non-essential travel and remain indoors as grounds and custodial staff clear paths and other pedestrian areas.
Carey also wrote that the Brown University Shuttle may cease operations at the discretion of First Transit, the BUS operator. The decision to shut down the shuttle will “be made and communicated separately from any decision to close or delay opening of the University,” Carey wrote.
Community members are encouraged to look for more information via the Emergency Information Line recorded message at 401-863-3111, Providence-area news outlets, the Brown homepage and the University’s emergency information page, Carey wrote.
