Class Cancellations/Campus Closing
Every effort will be made to keep the College open. However, there are times when conditions exist (poor weather, utilities interruption, etc.) that require the campus to be closed or for classes to be canceled. To clarify these instances:
Students and teaching faculty will not be required to report to campus. However, all others are expected to work. Non-teaching faculty responsibility is outlined in the Faculty-Staff Handbook.
Employees and students will not be required to report to campus. However, campus safety officers and maintenance personnel are to report to their regular shift schedules, unless otherwise notified.
The decision to cancel classes or close the campus will be made by the President no later than 6:30am, and will be communicated to local radio and television stations as soon as possible.
A Delayed Opening
Will generally indicate a time "on the hour" (i.e., The College will open at noon.). The "on the hour" time eliminates confusion, often projected by the media, when closing announcements are aired. Please understand, if the College opens at 12 p.m. (noon), faculty and students should be at their first class, that day, which has a start time closest to noon, but not preceding noon (i.e., not a class with an 11:45 a.m. start time, but any class starting from noon on).
The decision to cancel classes or close the campus will be made by the President as soon as possible and will be communicated to local media (see below). Announcements will also be posted on www.herkimer.edu, and an email notification will be sent to employees and students.
