As previously announced, a Shelter-in-Place order is now in effect on campus. Snowfall rates of 2-3 inches per hour as well as damaging winds are expected overnight.

From:  William J. Conley Jr, Director of Administrative Services
Subject: Weather Notification for the Holy Cross Community

In light of the Governor’s recommendation to have everyone off the road by 12:00 p.m., the President has authorized the early release to be moved up to 11:00 a.m. All non-essential personnel may leave the campus at 11:00 this morning. Faculty members who choose to cancel class should notify their students via email if they have not already done so.

As per my previous email the following facilities will remain open:

  • Kimball Dining Hall: will serve food until 6:30 p.m. and close at 7 p.m. on Friday, and reopen for brunch at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
  • Hogan Campus Center: limited service will be available on Friday from noon to 6:30 p.m.  and close at 7 p.m.  and reopen on Saturday at 12:00 noon
  • Dinand Library: will close at 7 p.m.  on Friday, both Dinand and Science Library will reopen Saturday 12:00 noon.
  • Hart Center and Fieldhouse: will close at 7 p.m. and reopen at 12:00 noon.

Due to the heavy snow and high winds the state is predicting that there may be some power outages.  I want to make sure that Faculty and Staff know that if they experience a power outage, their families are welcome to use the Kimball dinning facilities for a hot meal or a shower at the Hart Center.

Finally, I want to thank all those employees that are staying on the campus to provide services to our students. Your efforts are truly appreciated.

Sincerely
Bill Conley

RE: Weather Notification for the Holy Cross Community

As you know, the Northeast is bracing for a severe snow storm. In our efforts to help keep the Holy Cross campus community safe during this time, the College’s Emergency Response Team met this morning to review weather forecasts and campus preparations for the storm. Weather reports have indicated a light snow will begin falling Friday morning, becoming heavy in the late afternoon with the heaviest occurring Friday night into Saturday morning. The Worcester area is expecting 12 to 24 inches of snowfall, with accompanying high winds and dangerously low visibility.

Information for students

Faculty members will decide if they want to cancel class or not. You should assume that classes on Friday afternoon will be held as scheduled unless you hear otherwise from your professor.

We anticipate issuing a ‘shelter in place’ order on Friday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. to protect those on campus and to mitigate the risk of interference with snow removal operations. At that time, you will be instructed to stay in your residence halls. We anticipate the order will be lifted on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. You will receive all “shelter in place” orders via Connect ED message. All information will also be posted on the College website.

Facilities will be open as follows:

  • Kimball Dining Hall: will serve food until 6:30 p.m. and close at 7 p.m. on Friday, and reopen for brunch at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
  • Hogan Campus Center: limited service will be available on Friday from noon to 6:30 p.m. and close at 7 p.m. and reopen on Saturday at 12:00 noon
  • Dinand Library: will close at 7 p.m. on Friday, both Dinand and Science Library will reopen Saturday 12:00 noon.
  • Hart Center and Fieldhouse: will close at 7 p.m. and reopen at 12:00 noon.

We ask you to help us keep the campus safe by abiding by rules and directions — especially when the ‘shelter in place’ order is issued. In case of an emergency, please phone the Public Safety emergency line at Ext. 2222. For non-emergencies, call Ext. 2224.

Students interested in helping shovel snow on Saturday (after the ‘shelter in place’ order is lifted) should contact the grounds department at Ext. 3477.

Scheduled campus events and activities on Friday and Saturday will most likely be canceled. Please check your email and the College website for updates and more information.

Information for faculty and staff

The College will have an early release at noon on Friday, Feb. 8. Employees who are unable to come to work because of severe weather conditions should notify their supervisors. Vacation time, floating holidays or personal time may be used as appropriate. Sick time may not be used for this purpose.

All essential employees should check with their supervisors for specific instructions.

Parking/driving information

After 3 p.m. on Friday, there will be no parking along campus roadways or in the Hogan Campus Center and Loyola lots. Essential employees who must report to work should direct parking question to their supervisors.

Students traveling to or from campus should arrive or depart by noon on Friday.

Van service will shut down at 1 p.m. on Friday.

Emergency notification

In the event of emergency or critical campus situations, the community will be alerted via Connect ED, telephone and/or email messages.

Please check the College’s website for updates on our local weather, campus operations, and cancelled events. You will also find updates posted on the Holy Cross Facebook page and Twitter.

Campus events information

Events canceled:

  • Seelos Film Series: ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ at 7 p.m. in Seelos Theater is canceled
