For those of you new to the experience of hurricanes, it is often true that anxious preparation is followed by nothing more than a windy day. But what used to feel anticlimactic to me as a kid now registers as utter relief. Remember that we never regret making those necessary preparations. We never let our guard down, particularly this year when the world keeps throwing things at us.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, campus operations will reopen. We will, however, continue to teach virtually tomorrow because faculty and off-campus students made plans accordingly.
On Wednesday, we will be teaching on campus (other than the law school, which will communicate separately). Students, please keep an eye out for emails from your faculty with any specific instructions they may have.
We continue to watch the path of Tropical Storm Laura, currently forecast to hit southwest Louisiana near Texas early Thursday. Even if that path holds, we may experience the kind of rain that might lead to street flooding. We plan to make a decision by the end of tomorrow about whether we will teach virtually on Thursday.
And Friday is forecast to be a beautiful day and all systems go on campus.
We are so grateful for your patience and flexibility.
