By now, the string of emergency alerts from my work sites have been trickling in and are beginning to have a pretty predictable pattern.
Here’s the order of the announcements.
- CUNY announced a complete closure of its campuses, around 7:00 this morning.
- Around 12:30 PM, Fordham reassures us that everyone and its facilities are unharmed, but that classes are cancelled for Wednesday. That closure directly impacts me since I teach an 8:30 class there.
- Just before 1:00 PM, NYU also announced a complete closure of classes and activities, although they have established electronics charging stations, provided Internet and health care services at Kimmell and the lower level of Bobst Library.
- At about 1:45 PM, Pratt Institute, where I was supposed to teach class today, has been cancelled classes for tomorrow as well. However, that is a moot point for me since I only teach there on Tuesdays.
Oh well, back to getting some board games.
