A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University ( www.emporia.edu ) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  There will be a notification sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  There will be no notification if the University is to remain open.

The prediction for the next several days is for rain/freezing rain during Wednesday night into the day on Thursday.  Friday and Saturday will again have a chance for rain and/or snow starting around closing time on Friday. There will be crews out to pre-treat on Wednesday to keep roads and sidewalks cleared.  Crews will continue to work through the night and early morning to clear and treat roads, parking lots and walks.  FOOD & LIBRARY PATHWAYS will be addressed first.  Coming into work on Thursday will be treacherous until the temperatures rise above freezing.  So take care when you arrive.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) or to Police and Safety (5337). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after each event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event.

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University ( www.emporia.edu ) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  There will be a notification sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  There will be no notification if the University is to remain open.

The prediction for the next several days is for rain/freezing rain turning into snow during Friday night into the day on Saturday.  There will be crews out to pre-treat on Friday to keep roads and sidewalks cleared.  Crews will continue to work through the night and early morning to clear and treat roads, parking lots and walks.  FOOD & LIBRARY PATHWAYS will be addressed first.  Coming into work on Saturday and Sunday will be treacherous until the temperatures rise above freezing.    We should be in good shape for Martin Luther Day activities on Monday but please take care.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) or to Police and Safety (5337). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after each event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event.

 

Thank you.
