Trevecca classes move online for winter storm

All Trevecca classes will transition online for Monday, Feb. 15 as a safety measure for the winter storm warning in effect across middle Tennessee.  

The announcement arrived in an email from Tom Middendorf, university provost, on Sunday night. Trevecca employees will also move online and be remote alongside students. 

“Travel conditions are expected to be difficult and dangerous throughout the duration of the storm. Travel is not recommended unless absolutely necessary,” Middendorf said.  

According to the National Weather Service for Nashville, it is expected to see three to five inches of snow and sleet. The warning will remain in effect until 6 a.m. on Tuesday. Roads could be dangerous due to low visibility and slick asphalt.

Additionally, the National Weather Service said the storm could result in power outages due to the ice. 

“Please do your best to communicate with your professor when you are able,” Middendorf said in the statement. “Faculty (and other Trevecca employees) are aware of this possibility and could be impacted as well.”

Any further decisions and updates will be made after the storm passes and impact is assessed.  

“Bundle up, try to stay off the roads, and enjoy the winter weather safely,” Middendorf said.
