Is it incorrect to say that "I will inform students that tomorrow class will be cancelled?"

Does the sentence mean same as this sentence "I will inform students of that tomorrow class will be cancelled?"

  • In both examples, "tomorrow class" should be changed to either "tomorrow's class" or "class tomorrow", or "tomorrow class will be cancelled" should be changed to "class will be cancelled tomorrow". – Jasper Sep 29 '15 at 15:45

If you have a verb like "to inform someone of <something>" and change the construction using a that-clause, the preposition (of etc) is dropped. The prepositions remain before clauses with "what".

  • I informed her that I was unwell and could not come to her party.

  • He informed us of what had happened.
