Campus operations on Nov. 29 – faculty and staff

campus operations nov29

The National Weather Service forecast calls for a winter storm watch today. Snow is expected to start accumulating on the streets by 3 p.m. The projected amount of snow accumulation is 4" to 8". The Snohomish/King County border is expected to receive the most impact.

The safety of our campus community is paramount, so in light of this information we will suspend UW Bothell/Cascadia College campus operations at 1 p.m. today, Nov. 29. Faculty with classes beginning after 1 p.m. should make arrangements now to hold them online, and staff are advised to work remotely and provide services virtually after 1 p.m. While we have learned how to shift to online work, if you have any concerns or technology access questions, please discuss with your supervisor.

We understand that the forecast can change and believe that this decision now will keep our community as safe as possible while also allowing ample time to plan ahead in the event the forecast plays out.

We will continue to monitor the conditions and will provide an update about Wednesday’s schedule tomorrow (Nov. 29) by 6 p.m.
