IV-16
Inclement Weather


The Provost and the Vice President for Business, Finance and Technology will decide if there is a school delay or a school closing. Note that Elon remains open during snow storms and other inclement weather to serve resident students and commuters who live near the campus.

If weather conditions are so severe as to render it dangerous for STUDENTS to reach the university, those who elect not to come to campus on that particular day will not be penalized for failure to do so.

FACULTY who live some distance from campus and who might be prevented from safely traveling to campus must contact their respective dean and make arrangements to cover their classes.

Elon FACULTY and STAFF members are expected to be prudent but to take all reasonable measures to reach the campus during inclement weather. Administrative offices will open at 8:00 a.m. unless announced otherwise. A member of the administrative or support staff who chooses not to report for work when Elon is open must take a vacation day.

If it becomes necessary to alter the regular procedures it will be done as early as
possible and will be announced on the E-Net Web page, on the special telephone hotline: 278-SNOW and over the following regional television and radio stations:
