Any in-person activities scheduled on Tuesday, February 13 are canceled. Activities on or after Wednesday, February 14 will be held as originally scheduled.


Employees who perform “essential” services: Employees who are required to report to campus for work and have been previously identified as performing duties essential to maintaining operations should report to campus as directed. During such events, employees who are required to report to campus for work are eligible for Campus Closure Compensatory Time, subject to guideline provisions. Employees should clarify their status as essential or nonessential with their supervisor before inclement weather strikes.

All other employees at Schuylkill should not report to work until the resumption of normal campus operations and are eligible for Campus Closure Pay per university policy. Employees should review the “official closedowns” section of the University’s Handling Weather Day Absences policy (Human Resources Guideline 10) for specific information on how time missed for weather situations is handled.

Employees who have questions about a campus closure should contact their unit’s Human Resources consultant. 


The decision to cancel on-campus work and other activities at Penn State Schuylkill was determined to be in the best safety interest of the campus community. University officials continue to monitor conditions and will provide updates as necessary. The most up-to-date information will be shared via Penn State's PSUAlert system and Twitter.

All employees and students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own safety. Faculty, staff and students should use their own best judgment when considering traveling to campus or the need to leave early during times of inclement weather. Faculty and staff should review Handling Weather Day Absences (Human Resources Guideline 10) for specific information on how time missed for weather situations is handled.

Faculty and staff who have any questions about how these policies apply to them should consult with their supervisor or their unit human resources consultant.
