|Emergency Closing and Class Cancellation Procedures|
|With winter weather challenges rapidly approaching, I would like to remind you of the campus policies regarding early releases, delays or closings due to inclement weather, and to emphasize that SAFETY is our top priority. Decisions regarding campus closings, delayed openings or early dismissals will be made by the Campus Director in collaboration with the director of facilities, the UConn Police and the Department of Public Safety.
PLEASE PUT SAFETY FIRST:
If faculty members anticipate making individual snow emergency cancellations, they must:
An announcement to delay means that classes prior to the delayed opening hour will be cancelled. The class schedule will resume at the announced opening hour.
A recorded notice will be placed on the Campus Information line (860) 486-3768.
Notice of closings, delays or early releases will be broadcast over the following radio and TV stations:
Radio: WTIC AM & FM; WRCH; WZMX; WDRC AM & FM; HD, HD2, WMMW, WWCO, WSNG
These stations cover the entire state as well as parts of Western Massachusetts. Please remember that the stations broadcast our announcements as a public service and we cannot be responsible for any omissions or errors they make.
Although the campus may be closed by the Director, classified staff authorization for Winter Weather (WW) time must come from the Governor’s office. Therefore, classified staff should be prepared to report to work or use their own time in the event of a closing, delayed opening or early release that is not authorized by the Governor’s office.
