Out of an abundance of caution and safety for the entire University of La Verne community, no in-person classes will be held today, Monday, Feb. 5. Faculty have been asked to move them to online modality if possible and communicate with students as soon as possible.
All campus locations will remain open for essential operations only. Staff should consult with supervisor for remote work details and all meetings should be transitioned to virtual.
The university will continue to monitor the weather and provide community updates.
Our community is encouraged to use extra caution navigating through this strong storm that is anticipated for the next few days.
Safety tips to consider:
1. Consider cancelling outdoor activities
2. Stay informed: Keep yourself updated on the latest weather forecasts and alerts from local authorities. This will help you plan your preparations accordingly.
3. Stay away from flood prone areas: Avoid driving or walking through flooded areas, as the water may be deeper than it appears and could be carrying debris.
4. Identify multiple evacuation routes from your home or business so that if one is blocked by water you have an exit.
5. Never enter a flooded roadway- 6 inches of moving water can knock a person down and one foot of moving water can sweep a car away.
6. Consider not parking on streets near large trees. Use our parking lots instead.
7. Winter storms may cause significant commute challenges such as flooding roads and freeways, so please drive cautiously and give yourself extra time.
