Plan for Hazardous Weather Conditions School Closing Information


If ice, sleet or snow produces hazardous driving conditions that necessitate the suspension of classes and the closing of the campus, official announcements will be made over the following radio stations.

In addition these channels will carry the message over television. 

Only announcements made by these radio and television stations will be considered official. Students, faculty and staff are requested to listen to one of these stations for official announcements rather than calling the Southern Polytechnic campus or the University Police Department.

When bad weather conditions exist, only two classifications will be used relative to the operational status of Southern Polytechnic.

  • Campus Open: All employees are expected to report to work and all scheduled classes will be held.
  • Campus Closed: All classes are cancelled and employees do not report to work.

The Physical Plant and the University Police Department will be operated with existing personnel when the campus is closed. The Library will be open, if possible, for student use. The Student Center will be opened by the Student Center staff; and, every effort will be made to provide food service for on-campus residents.
