As a result of freezing temperatures and precipitation throughout the Laredo area, TAMIU extends its late opening for Tuesday, Feb. 16, on campus.
Texas A&M International University offices are scheduled to open at noon today.
Throughout the Laredo region, students are experiencing power and internet outages due to the recent cold weather and Sunday night’s snow and freezing rain. Some have been without power for 24 hours or more, as of Tuesday morning.
“TAMIUFlex classes are scheduled synchronously all day,” according to an email, from University President Pablo Arenaz, which was sent to all University employees and students.
Previously, TAMIU held the same policy on Monday.
“In light of inclement weather in the Laredo area, Texas A&M International University will delay its opening Monday till noon,” Arenaz wrote in a prior email that went out to the University faculty and students. “TAMIUFlex morning classes will be held synchronously online. Labs will be postponed and may be made up. Offices will open at noon.”
While there is no official word yet, plans continue for the University to resume full TAMIUFlex courses on Wednesday, weather allowing.
“TAMIU community members are urged to monitor DustyALRT, the University’s emergency alert system, the University’s Uconnect portal, social media channels and local media for weather updates and additional notifications,” the president’s emails both concluded.
