Message from President McGuire to the Trinity Community
RE:  Trinity Closed; Further Instructions for Exams Coming

Unfortunately, the timing of today’s snowstorm in the morning has made it clear that we must close Trinity today.  We know this affects a large number of final exams and final classes.  Provost Broaddus will be in contact with faculty and students about alternative scheduling for finals. (See message below.) We realize this is disruptive but your safety and ability to get to and from Trinity safely is paramount.  Thank you for your cooperation in working with alternative plans. We’ll keep you posted on developments; follow us on Twitter @trinitydc and sign-up for text alerts by sending “Follow Trinitydcalerts” to 40404.

Message to Students from Provost Virginia Broaddus Regarding Final Exams

Thank you for understanding that in making our decisions about classes and examinations today, Tuesday, December 10, we are striving to keep your well-being in mind even as we value the many, many ways you are closing out the
semester academically.

We are planning the following for those of you who had examinations and classes scheduled today:

Examinations scheduled for 8:45 AM, 12:15 PM, and 3:00 PM:

Your faculty may give those exams in the same time slots this Friday, December 13 OR they may be in touch about scheduling the exam for an alternative delivery.  We understand that Friday may pose challenges for some of you:  we will work to help you resolve those challenges in a way that honors your learning and respects your and your faculty member’s time.

Tuesday Evening Classes:

Your faculty, your deans, and I are working to ensure that you have the best opportunity to make up any instruction missed or exams scheduled, as well as any presentations.  We know that Moodle will provide a great opportunity for assisting with this, and many will use Moodle precisely for that purpose.  In other cases, we will be in touch if we need to make arrangements for you to take an exam or have contact with your class in other ways.

Your deans, your faculty, and I may be in touch throughout the day as we ensure that all faculty and students have the best possible opportunity for brining the semester to a close.  Your safety comes first.  We appreciate, so much, the dedication you bring to your studies and the talents your professors bring to you as their students.
