University Cancels Classes Wednesday. I Add Thursday.


ALL EDM310 Classes Scheduled for the rest of this week are CANCELLED.

At 6:00 pm last night (Monday 8/27/12) the University added Wednesday as a closure day:
Tropical Storm Isaac Update: Monday, 6 p.m.

Due to additional information on Tropical Storm Isaac and the announced mandatory evacuation of parts of Mobile and Baldwin counties, the University of South Alabama has canceled classes at all locations for Tuesday and Wednesday and will resume its normal class schedule on Thursday. University offices will close Tuesday and staff employees should not report except for employees designated as essential personnel. Staff employees should plan to return to work on Wednesday. Should the weather worsen beyond current predictions, staff employees will be notified of any Wednesday office closings no later than 6 p.m. on Tuesday. Students residing on campus are welcomed to stay in residence halls, and food service will be provided. Students, faculty and staff should use their best judgment to make decisions based on their personal safety.

All Health Sciences Division students should follow the directives of the general University except those in clinical settings, who should follow the directives of their assigned clinical supervisors. USA's hospitals and clinics will remain open, and employees and all medical residents/fellows should report to work as usual. Hospital and clinic employees experiencing hardships should contact their supervisor.

Please be reminded that the only official sources of USA weather and emergency information are campus wide e-mail, the USA Weather and Emergency Hotline at (251) 460-6999, and the University's Web site. For the latest updated information on the evacuation announced by the
state of Alabama, go to .

As a result I have decided that Thursday EDM310 Classes are also cancelled in order to create a workable schedule. See the post immediately above this post for an explanation of what these changes mean to you.
