Penn State Cancels Classes Through 5 P.M. On February 25 Due To Forecasted Snow, Ice

Due to forecasted snow and ice, Penn State has canceled all in-person classes, work, and activities through 5 p.m. on Friday, February 25, the university announced Thursday night.

From 10 p.m. Thursday until 5 p.m. on Friday, February 25, all in-person classes and activities at the University Park campus are canceled. While instructors can offer asynchronous resources for students, no regularly scheduled in-person courses can meet remotely.

All activities that are set to begin at 5 p.m. or later on Friday are expected to be held as originally scheduled.

The decision to cancel in-person activities comes as AccuWeather forecasts 1 to 3 inches of mixed precipitation that includes snow and sleet between 7 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. Friday. Additionally, ice accumulations of one tenth to two tenths of an inch are expected.

If you’re not sure how your classes will be impacted, here’s what you need to know:

  • In-person classes: In-person classes are completely canceled until 5 p.m. Friday. Regularly scheduled in-person classes can’t meet on Zoom, as only asynchronous materials can be offered by instructors.
  • Hybrid classes: If your class was scheduled to meet in-person, it’s canceled. If you were slated to attend remotely, you still have class.
  • Remote synchronous classes: You’ll likely still be on Zoom as planned unless your professor is kind enough to give you the day off.
  • Web classes: No changes here!

Employees who are required to work on campus or perform essential duties should report to campus as directed by their supervisors. Employees who don’t perform essential services can stay home. Additionally, non-essential employees who are able to work remotely should do so throughout the impacted period.
