All classes on all Northwestern State University campuses will be held virtually beginning at noon Wednesday, Feb. 17 through Friday, Feb. 19. Employees on all campuses will telework beginning Tuesday, February 16, and will continue working remotely through Friday, February 19, according to NSU President Dr. Chris Maggio.
Administrators closely watching the Natchitoches-area forecast determined that roads could remain hazardous for several days following the arctic blast that crept into Texas and Louisiana overnight Sunday.
“It is with an abundance of caution that we move to remote instruction the remainder of the week,” Maggio said. “Many of our students had traveled to their homes for Mardi Gras break and it could be unsafe for them to attempt to return to Natchitoches this week. Students who are experiencing power outages will receive excused absences.”
Information will be made available atwww.nsula.edu and the university’s social media channels as the situation develops.
