As of Now, OU is Open Tomorrow

Just a reminder that The Shepherd’s Center follows Richmond Public Schools closing decisions. As of right now, Richmond schools are on a 2-hour delay for Monday, January 14, which means that the Open University will start ON TIME at 9:45 am tomorrow!

If conditions worsen overnight and the status changes, updates will be posted on news channels 6 and 8, on our website –, and emailed to you, just like now. We will be following Richmond Public Schools’ final decision.

As always, please use caution when driving in wintery conditions.  Take good care – Julie
