Purdue to operate Tuesday on normal schedule

January 27, 2014  

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue officials confirmed that the university will operate on a normal work and class schedule for Tuesday (Jan. 28).

This decision is based on a careful consideration by the administration and an assessment of the National Weather Service (NWS) forecast, including predicted temperatures and wind speed, for the West Lafayette campus and a discussion with NWS staff. Purdue administrators coupled this assessment with the university's longstanding procedures for severe weather.

Purdue has had only one other temperature-related class delay in its history, and those temperatures were significantly lower than current predictions, said Carol Shelby, senior director for environmental health and public safety.

While all classes are slated to take place on a regular schedule, students are encouraged to contact their professors for further information, as instructors could decide to cancel individual class sessions.

Any employees who determine that their individual situation makes travel to work unsafe are reminded they can use paid or unpaid leave if they are unable to report for campus duty, however, they should contact their supervisors as soon as possible.
