Open with Instructional and Administrative Continuity on Saturday, Feb. 17

February 16, 2024

All GW campuses and centers will be open on Saturday, Feb. 17, with instructional and administrative continuity.

This operating status indicates the following:

  • Classes will continue, and faculty are required to inform students of relevant instructional continuity plans if needed (e.g., if an in-person class will instead be held virtually).
  • Essential On-Site Staff must report to their workplace on time as directed by their supervisor. 
  • In-Person and Hybrid Staff should use their best judgment if adverse weather creates extreme hazards if traveling to or from the workplace. If scheduled to work, In-Person and Hybrid Staff may choose to report to work as normal; report to work virtually if approved by their supervisor and a telework agreement is in place; or take annual leave.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for all GW campuses and centers from 11 p.m. tonight through 7 a.m. Saturday morning. 

The university will continue to monitor winter weather and provide updates regarding any important impacts on our campuses. GW communicates changes to its operating status via an automatic email sent to all GW email addresses. To sign up for optional GW Alert text messages, follow the instructions here.
