Important notice: No change in exam schedule

December 19, 2008

There will be no change in the exam schedule today for UW–Madison students.

Campus crews are keeping up with plowing and clearing snow, which is expected to fall through noon today. The university is open for business.

Students who feel it is too unsafe to travel to campus should contact their professors or teaching assistants before the exam time to make alternate arrangements.

A Snow Action Day is in effect for campus. Motorists are encouraged to park in cleared parking areas where possible. The top levels of parking ramps will be closed and commuters are encouraged to ride the bus to campus if possible. Snow Action Days allow crews to clear snow more effectively by prioritizing streets, parking areas and sidewalks.

Please note, a Snow Action Day is an advisory and a call to action, and does not mean that classes are canceled or the university has been closed. Any changes to campus operations will be announced on TV, radio, the news page and university home page. Other cancellations will be posted as available.

University employees are advised to use their own discretion regarding their health and safety and that of their family members, but they are required to use accrued holiday, vacation or compensation time to cover any absences. Supervisors are advised to be flexible in their approval of employee-requested leave in inclement weather situations.

Separately, the City of Madison has declared a snow emergency, affecting alternate side parking regulations. The city will also tow illegally parked cars on designated streets in the downtown area. For more information, visit the city of Madison web site.
