According to the series of texts we all got at 6 a.m. today, school is closed! Yay! Just like the snow days of old, running around in the backyard, curling up with a cup of hot cocoa and watching the flakes fall. Except for the small detail that classes are not cancelled.
In an email sent this morning, Kenyon explained that as a result of what the Knox County Sherriff’s office is calling a Level 2 Snow Emergency, “College administrators have decided that only those employees considered essential to safe operations are expected to report for work on Wednesday.” Good news, guys — we’re essential! As are AVI, Maintenance, student housing, the Health Center, Campus Safety, the Bookstore and LBIS — they’ll be open as well. Your professors can also cancel class at their discretion, so keep your eyes peeled for emails and for the love of God, stay warm out there.
