UD to reopen; operating on normal schedule March 4
5:47 p.m., March 3, 2014--The University of Delaware will reopen, effective 11 p.m., Monday, March 3, and UD's Newark campus and the Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes will operate on their normal schedules on Tuesday, March 4.
Students in the Associate in Arts Program should follow the Delaware Technical Community College schedule.
UD administrators are continuing to monitor the weather and road conditions. Facilities staff members have been working to clear campus parking lots and sidewalks.
Postponements, cancellations (updated at 11:15 p.m., March 3, 2014)
• The Associate in Arts Dover Campus will open at 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, March 4. Students in classes meeting at 10 a.m. will be notified by their instructors if they will meet.
Members of the University community are reminded that safety is UD's highest priority. Faculty, staff and students should not put themselves at risk, and employees who expect difficulty traveling should contact their supervisors.
Faculty members unable to hold class should notify their departmental offices, and students unable to attend class should contact their professors. In such cases, UD policy states that students should be allowed to make up missed class time and canceled classes should be rescheduled when possible.
The University's policy is reprinted below:
Faculty and students are not expected to take unnecessary risks to meet their teaching and learning obligations due to inclement weather. When classes have not been canceled, it is a matter of personal judgment whether traveling to campus is hazardous. Faculty should notify their departmental offices when weather precludes them from meeting their teaching obligations; similarly, students should notify their professors when inclement weather precludes them from class attendance. In such cases, students should be allowed to make up missed class time and, whenever possible, canceled classes should be rescheduled.
Driving restriction lifted
On March 3, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell lifted the Level 1 Driving Restriction in New Castle County at 2 p.m. and in Kent County at 6 p.m. The restriction will be lifted at 8 p.m. in Sussex County.
