Carleton To Start Winter Term As Scheduled Monday

January 4, 2014

Carleton College will open as scheduled for the start of Winter Term on Monday, January 6.

College officials will continue to monitor the weather situation closely and communicate any changes to students via email and the CarlAlert emergency notification system. We will also post updates via our social media feeds (Twitter and Facebook).

Faculty have also been asked to be flexible in dealing with absent students due to the weather and travel delays returning from break. Students have also been notified to take extreme caution in dealing with the coldest weather Minnesota has witnessed in nearly two decades.

Students should monitor current weather conditions via local media outlets or the National Weather Service. Minnesota road condition updates are available online at MN511.

Please note the National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Warning through 12 noon on Tuesday, Jan. 7. More info on the warning is available at the NWS website.
