Important Winter Weather Notification – March 14, 2017

March 13th, 2017 by 

Date: Wednesday, March 15, 2017 – 4:00 a.m.
From: College of the Holy Cross

The College will be open on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 and will resume normal operations effective 5 a.m. on Wednesday.

 


Date: Monday, March 13, 2017 – 4:45 p.m.
From: College of the Holy Cross

Because of concerns for the safety of our students, faculty, staff and guests, and in light of the Winter Storm Warning in effect for Central Massachusetts, with heavy snowfall and blizzard conditions predicted for tomorrow, the College will be closed beginning at 5 a.m. on Tuesday, March 14, 2017.

Information for Students and Faculty

No classes will be held on campus. However, faculty may choose to hold class via alternative channels. Students, please check your Holy Cross email for messages and instructions from your professors.

Based on storm predictions, we anticipate a call for “shelter in place.” During this specific period of time everyone is expected to remain in their residence hall.  This order will be given via text message through the College’s Connect ED emergency notification system. Given the current storm predictions, we anticipate giving this order after 1 p.m. on March 14.

With constant plowing of our campus in low visibility and blizzard conditions, we need cooperation to ensure everyone’s safety. Please follow the directions sent through the emergency system.

Information for Staff & Faculty

When the College is closed, employees are not required to report to work, except for Emergency Personnel. Emergency Personnel are those employees whose function is necessary for the continued and safe operation of the College, including employees from Kimball Dining Services, Public Safety and Facilities. Due to the nature of their jobs, Emergency Personnel are required to work their normally scheduled hours during inclement weather, unless notified otherwise by their supervisor.

Facilities

Facilities will be open as follows, though not all rooms and spaces may be available:

  • Kimball Dining Hall: will serve food tomorrow until 1 p.m. and then open during a window for dinner, anticipating 7 – 9 p.m.
  • Hart Center and Field House: will close at 1 pm.
  • Dinand Library: closed
  • Hogan Campus Center: closed

Campus Events

Scheduled campus events and activities on Tuesday are cancelled and may be rescheduled at a later date.

Communications

In case of an emergency, please call the Public Safety emergency line at Ext. 2222. For non-emergencies, call Ext. 2224 (508-793-2224).

Please check this website for updates on campus operations, and cancelled events. You will also find updates posted on the Holy Cross Facebook page and Twitter account. Closure information will also be posted on www.holycross.edu and communicated on the College Snow Line and local media stations.
