A winter weather event has caused Penn State Abington to cancel on-campus work, in-person classes, and other in-person activities at Abington beginning at 7:00 a.m. on Feb. 18 and ending at 7:00 p.m. on Feb. 19.
While Abington is operating in a hybrid in-person and remote state, instructors teaching in any mode of instruction may opt to deliver instruction asynchronously during the cancellation period. Instructors should communicate directly to their students regarding instruction during the cancellation period.
During a cancellation period, there are different options for the various COVID course modes:
COVID In-Person (CP) courses that occur between Feb. 18 at 7:00 a.m. and Feb. 19 at 7:00 p.m. will not be held on campus. Instructors may choose to offer content asynchronously.
If a Hybrid/COVID Mixed-Mode (CM) course is scheduled to meet in person during the cancellation period, instructors should give serious consideration to meeting asynchronously. As with CP courses, the instructor may choose to offer content asynchronously or cancel class altogether.
COVID Remote (CR) courses may continue to meet remote synchronously at the usual time, or the instructor may choose to offer content asynchronously or cancel class altogether.
Web and COVID Remote Asynchronous (CW) courses will continue with no changes.
