Update 5:30 a.m. —

The Ithaca City School District is closed because of the snow storm. “All school-sponsored after-school and evening activities are also cancelled,” the school says.

Cornell University is expected to remain open, the university said. Ithaca College appears open as well (Update: TC3 has now closed).

Cornell’s 3:30 a.m. alert noted:

If the university remains open in bad weather, all employees are expected to make reasonable efforts to maintain their regular work schedules. Please use your best judgment in deciding whether conditions in your area are safe enough for travel.

Employees who do not report to work when the university is open are not required to provide advance notice to use accrued time, but they should contact their supervisors as soon as possible.

To avoid using accrued time, employees must make arrangements in advance with their supervisors to work at home or make up the time later in that pay period, if possible.
