Unless your users fall into these categories, DO NOT PANIC. Users WITH the Lightning Experience permission ENABLED either via standard profile assignment or users assigned to custom profiles or permission sets with Lightning Experience system permission enabled, will receive Lightning Experience as a user experience. (Note: Any custom profiles cloned from a standard profile will inherit the Lightning Experience system permission. However, a system administrator can disable it. For those users with the Lightning Experience permission, once a week, users still using Classic will be automatically logged into Lightning Experience. Users will be able to switch back to Classic, as needed.

Users with the Lightning Experience User permission see the Switch to Lightning Experience link in the Salesforce Classic header. Once a week, these users who are still working in Salesforce Classic are automatically logged into to Lightning Experience. They can still switch back to Salesforce Classic, as needed.
