Only employees identified as “performing essential services” should report to work as regularly scheduled unless advised otherwise by their supervisor.
With a winter weather advisory in effect from 1 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Wednesday, State College is expected to receive 3-6 inches of snow as well as some icy roads and walkways.
Both of those closures in 2017 came after the icepocalypse, when the university was criticized for holding classes as scheduled before Penn State Senior Vice President for Finance and Business David Gray said later that night “we missed on this one and are working to improve our protocols to ensure Penn State’s response is timely and appropriate.”
