UPDATE (7 p.m. 11/18): Classes canceled on Monday, Nov. 19

Though the air quality in our region may be improving some, the forecast for tomorrow (Monday, Nov. 19) is expected to be in the “Unhealthy” range (150-200 AQI). Due to the health risks associated with the particulates in the air, the Laney campus will remain closed. We will continue to monitor and assess the situation and keep you informed as to when the campus will re-open.
Staff and administrators are to report to work as scheduled, but if they prefer to stay home, they can use vacation or sick days.
 
In addition, to ensure student credit hours are not impacted, faculty may add meetings and/or assignments.
