Information for Students as they Return to Charlottesville This Weekend

January 11, 2019

Dear Parents:

We are enjoying a sunny but very cold day in Charlottesville, and as you may know, snow is in the forecast for our area. Since many students will be traveling back to the Grounds this weekend, I am writing to share details that University Dean of Students Allen Groves provided to students earlier today in a mass message

Information as You Return to Grounds this Weekend

January 11, 2019

Dear Students:

It’s a pleasure to welcome you back to a new semester. I hope you had a chance during the break to spend time with those you love, relax a little, and maybe even learn something new.

If you are not already in Charlottesville, I want you to be aware of two things that may affect your travels and return between now and Sunday. One is the weather, and the other is the continued closure of a portion of Emmet Street.

Dear Parents:

With the conclusion of exams on Wednesday, winter break is officially under way. The Grounds feel empty right now without our students, but I hope your home feels full as you welcome your student back for a well-deserved break and time with family.

The city of Charlottesville will close a portion of Emmet Street from Ivy Road south to the McCormick Road bridge from Wednesday, December 19, until Monday, January 14, for work on a waterline project.
