Campus Closure Extended

Fort Valley State University extends campus closure an additional day

Jan. 29, 2014 – All Fort Valley State University campus locations and Head Start Centers in Crisp, Dooly, Taylor and Macon counties will remain closed on Thursday, Jan. 30, due to potentially hazardous conditions remaining from the winter storm.

Dr. Dwayne Crew, associate vice president of business and finance who leads FVSU’s Emergency Management Team, said icy roads and walkways left by the freezing rain and snow that blanketed the central Georgia area Tuesday continue to be a cause for concern for emergency management and university officials.

As a result, all FVSU classes, events and activities scheduled during this closure have been cancelled; however, essential personnel with campus police and plant operations should report to work.

On-campus housing and food service will continue to be available for residential students. Campus officials also have taken the necessary measures to protect the animals housed on campus.

FVSU is continuing plans to identify opportunities for students to make up any missed classes due to the campus closure. Faculty and staffers will continue on administrative leave during the closure.

The university will reopen for normal business hours on Friday, Jan. 31.
