Shimer College

January 05, 2014

Shimer Closed Monday, January 6 due to inclement weather

The predicted high is only -10F (-23C) with severe wind chill warnings that could make travel very hazardous.
All staff members are encouraged to work from home on Monday, prioritizing spring enrollment, beginning of the semester preparations, and projects with January deadlines.
Joseph Fitzpatrick and Marc Hoffman will be on campus for part of Monday in order to check the building and to offer remote support to employees before scurrying back home to drink hot beverages. Anyone needing remote access to their desktop, please contact Marc directly.
A separate notice will be sent to students. Supervisors, if you know of employees (including FWS) who do not regularly check their email at home, please distribute this message through whatever alternate communications you have arranged with your team.
IIT has also reported that it will be closed. Shimer College will return to a normal schedule on Tuesday, January 7, 2014.


Please be safe out there!
