Ah, that time of year when local K-12 schools close and flakes suddenly become research experts on all things meteorological. (colleagues too)
Here at Comprehensive Regional Midwest U, the administration (wisely) decided to cancel classes yesterday, but managed to utterly mangle the message. We got an email that read "AM/PM classes cancelled, campus closed until noon, monitor local TV stations for more information and updates."
It appears that the intent was to hold evening classes - but no one really knows what constitutes an evening class.
Oh, and the TV stations didn't even try to figure it out. They all just said that classes were cancelled for the day.
The temperature is forecast to recover to the single digits today...below zero. Classes as scheduled!
Q: My question to you is - what would you do with a "day off"?
Me, I wrote an email to be sent to the whole campus about assessment and upcoming accreditation. Oh yeah!
Final note: in a long email chain complaining about the mangled communication, a proffie somehow managed to connect bad messaging to the holocaust.
