USciences Inclement Weather Procedures

Dear Campus Community,

Due to the threat of inclement weather for tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with USciences inclement weather procedures. 

In general, USciences’ practice is to remain open and to conduct business as usual during periods of inclement weather; however, the University is committed to the safety and security of its faculty, staff, and students. The decision to cancel classes, close university offices, and/or cancel or postponeUSciences sponsored programs or activities is based on this overall concern. 

Decisions to cancel classes/close offices at the University or delay the opening of the University will be communicated to the University community by 5:30 a.m. via email, text message, media outlets, and the University’s usciences.edu and emergency (http://emergency.usciences.edu) websites. (For evening programs, the same process as noted above will be enacted and a decision regarding the campus response will be made by no later than 2:00 p.m.) 

  • Faculty, staff, and students should refer to the overall inclement weather policy found on Blackboard in the University Policies folder for additional information and guidelines.
  • A reminder that students on rotations and at clinical sites should follow the procedures of their sites.
  • For on-site classes, faculty and students should also refer to the inclement weather policy found on Blackboard in the Office of the Provost community for information regarding missed classes, labs, and/or exams.
  • Online classes will be expected to continue.
  • Facilities, Sodexo, and Public Safety are considered essential personnel and will be notified of the staffing plan by their supervisor prior to the storm to ensure necessary coverage.

 

Earliest notification of weather-related changes will be through the emergency text alerts system.  Please make sure you are signed up for this service or take a moment today to make sure your contact information is up to date at https://alert.usciences.edu

Thank you, 

USciences Emergency Management Team
