Re: Hurricane Sandy Update
In an effort to keep you informed about the University’s response to Hurricane Sandy, I wanted you to know that classes will be canceled again tomorrow, October 30. We continue to watch the storm’s movement, and we stand ready to take any needed action to ensure the safety of our students and all members of the University community. Without question, this is a dangerous storm, and only time will reveal how it directly affects our area. Current predictions call for high winds and rain in the Charlottesville area through tomorrow.
A message from Patrick Hogan, the University’s newly named executive vice president and chief operating officer, went out around 7:30 this evening to students, faculty and staff. Again, as President Sullivan emphasized in her message to you yesterday, please encourage your daughter or son to take every precaution to be safe during this time.
We are already looking ahead to Wednesday, Halloween, a night that brings a different set of student safety concerns. We will communicate with you in a separate message about safety tips that we are sharing with students.
If I or a member of my team can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us. I hope you and your family will remain safe if you are in the path of the storm.
