Campus Safety Alert

Winter Storm Response - University Open, Use Caution

Mount St. Mary’s University intends to remain open for operations the remainder of today.  Effective at 10 a.m., employees are invited to take liberal leave (paid vacation or personal leave) or to telecommute (regular work hours). Supervisor approval is required. For those essential personnel who are required to report to work, the University will be taking extra precautions for your safety.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, January 8.  A wintry mix with freezing rain and sleet is expected. The ice will result in very slippery conditions on sidewalks, roads and bridges, including during the evening commute. A light glaze of ice is expected.  Even if air temperatures rise above freezing, the ground and other surfaces are still extremely cold due to the recent Arctic blast. This increases the likelihood of a glaze of ice on surfaces.

Please use caution when traveling.
