Laurentian response to campus security issues, health situations, natural disasters, weather and national or international emergencies.
March 14, 2017
To the St. Lawrence Community:
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning in effect now until 11 am Wednesday, March 15. Heavy snow, blowing and drifting snow and strong gusty winds are expected.
While on the St. Lawrence University campus, please use extra caution on roadways, walkways, parking lots and stairs. Also, please be aware of where you walk and park in relation to trees that have the potential for falling limbs and ice.
Safety and Security requests that you report any unsafe conditions that need immediate attention (fallen limbs, utility lines or accidents) by calling (315) 229-5555.
During an extreme weather event, there are often questions related to the campus-closure policy. As a residential campus, we have a responsibility to provide services to our students. St. Lawrence plans to remain open. When the University is open, individual employees, for whatever reason, who are unable to arrive at work or stay at work are asked to notify their supervisor or manager as early as possible to plan for their absence. Students should check their email for any messages and special instructions from their professors.
Faculty may decide to cancel or reschedule classes at their discretion today and Wednesday. Faculty are asked to communicate such decisions directly to your students.
We will keep the campus community updated via email and on the St. Lawrence University emergency website. Emergency notices, if needed, will be sent through text message and email.
Visit the National Weather Service for up-to-date weather advisories.
