Southeast Missouri State closed for the remainder of the week

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Southeast Missouri State University will be closed through Friday. That includes all Southeast campuses in Cape girardeau, Sikeston, Kennett, and Malden.

According to Ann Hayes with Southeast Missouri State University, the university is having trouble getting salt and sand to clear the parking lots.

They have concern for pedestrians on campus.

"We have over 11,000 students and only 3,000 live on campus so we have probably between 7,000 or 8,000 people coming in every day for classes; and, the facilities folks have done a great job on the sidewalks but the parking lots are really treacherous right now," said Dr. Kenneth Dobbins, Southeast President.

Hayes says the last time the university for this many days in a row was the ice storm of 2009.

The University School for Young Children is closed until Monday.

Kent Library will remain open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Feb. 6 and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Feb. 7.
