Cancellations: If school is canceled, the day is no longer considered a school day. This means students will not attend their LTIs, whether they are in-person internships or remote mentorships.
Delays: If we are on a two-hour late start, this is a school day, so LTIs continue. Students who attend in person at a work site may need to arrive late depending on the time of day and local weather conditions. The student should communicate with the mentor (and advisor) if the start time needs to be altered for safety reasons. Students on campus start at 10:50 a.m. with the usual 1 p.m. T-Th dismissal for PM Self-Directed Learning time.
