A weather hotline, with campus status, may be reached at 269-7199

The hotline will indicate one of the following conditions:

1. Normal operations - no University - wide class cancellation

2. ALL classes cancelled - employees must report to work

3. Evening classes cancelled - employees report this evening and tomorrow as scheduled

4. COMPLETE University closure - campus operations suspended, only employees in areas designated as "essential services" are to report to work.

If you do not hear from the above listed media that Pitt-Johnstown is closed, then assume that classes will be held.

It may become necessary for an instructor to cancel a particular class. If you think that may be the case, contact your professor ot the division office for information concerning that class.

Students must use their own judgement about travel safety, road conditions, etc. from their home to the Pitt-Johnstown Campus.
