I thought I might share with you this nugget attached to my online classroom:
At this time, although the tsunami conditions are continuing to be monitored, classes will proceed as normal.
Ok. Just to clarify:
1. The events in Japan are horrific and mind boggling; what does that have to do with a school located on the East Coast. Of the United States.
2. It is unlikely that the online environment will be affected, unless they want to blame tsunami on last week's electronic screwing over of a vast number of students due to non-existent "financial problem".
