By now many of you are probably aware that there’s snow in the Saturday and Sunday forecasts for Farmville (and consequently Longwood). Rest assured that Longwood is well-versed in preparing for snow and meeting the needs of students when it arrives.
Key administrators and staff from across the campus are meeting regularly to monitor the forecast and make preparations for the impending weather.
One change that has already been made is the time move-in will begin. Students can now begin moving back onto campus at 1 p.m. tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 11. Classes are still set to resume Tuesday morning.
As the forecast becomes more clear and decisions are made, updates to building hours, the class meeting schedule and campus events will be posted to alerts.longwood.edu. (The screen shot above shows what the site looks like.) You can visit this site for the most updated information concerning winter weather.
Updates also will be texted or emailed to students. If you would also like to receive alerts via text and/or email, you can sign up here. Click on “Sign Up” in the upper right corner; then fill out the requested information and click on the “Create Account” tab. You’ll then have the options to fill in a phone number that can receive texts and an email address.
Of course, there’s always the chance that the snow will completely miss us. Hope springs eternal.
Best, Sabrina Brown
