The Senate just released an update that says, essentially, unless a resolution is met before December 15th there will be no school in December regardless if a resolution is met during the month. That means that no classes will be held before the resumption date of January 5th even if a resolution is met after the 15th. Here are some other provisions outlined in the update:
• If Senate declares an end to the disruption on or before December 15, priority
will be given to scheduling make up classes for courses that normally meet on
Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
• No classes or examinations will be held on December 20, 21, 22 and 23
regardless of when the disruption might conclude.
• Under normal circumstances the Winter term would have begun on January 5,
2009. As a result of the disruption, and with specified exceptions, the Winter
term for courses that have been suspended will start immediately following the
Fall term remediation period.
So there we have it, the Senate has given a deadline for the resumption of classes. This safely secures us that there will be no school before January 5th at the very earliest.
