Vermont Law School’s Facebook Page has the following announcement:

“Vermont Law School is officially closed today — Tues. Classes will start WED. Power is back. Phones partially restored. Server’s being worked on. Some roads washed out and will take days to fix. Stay tuned for updates.”

Since servers are not up yet, all email sent to a vermontlaw.edu email address will not be received and will bounce back. The law school website is still down. While power is back at the law school, I do not have word whether the surrounding community has power.

The law school phone number (802-831-1000) is back up, reporting that the law school is closed today (Tuesday), will be open tomorrow (Wednesday) and that student refund checks are currently available in the business office.  (I assume by “refund checks,” the law school is referring to financial aid checks.)

Based on Facebook posts, people want to know what roads are or will be open in SoRo. Thus, I encourage everyone to use their best judgment in deciding whether to leave their homes. Yesterday at Noon, Route 14 north and south of the Law School were washed out. Rt 110 was open from South Royalton all the way to Barre. That said, conditions change all the time, and I would be reluctant to rely on this 24 hours later.

To my students: If you feel at all unsafe in leaving your home and driving, do not come to my class tomorrow. I would rather you be safe and feel safe. I am more than happy to makeup with you any materials that you may miss.
