George Mason University Cancels Classes Tuesday

George Mason University officials announced today that all classes will be canceled at its Northern Virginia campuses on inauguration day Tuesday because of transportation concerns. Classes will be held on May 5th in order to complete the academic calendar; and on April 23rd for the School of Law, officials said. Though classes are canceled, officials said in a release that employees should make arrangement to provide some institutional and student services:

The campuses at Fairfax, Prince William and Loudoun will be open; the Arlington campus will be closed because the campus is directly impacted by road and bridge closures. It is essential that sufficient employees be available to provide minimal coverage to conduct institutional business and student services as necessary at all four campuses. Managers will make these staffing decisions. For those who work at the campuses which will remain open, we strongly encourage all managers to make arrangements for people to work from home or utilize flexible work options.

All Inauguration-related events that have been planned for students on campus will be held as scheduled. Go to this Web site for more information
