Severe Weather Policy

In the event of severe weather or other community alert situations that may impact the ability of students, faculty or staff to reach our centers, the following policies and resources will be used to determine and communicate any closures.

In addition to community closure announcements, you will also see an alert notice on this Extended Campus website. So that we can ensure that those who are impacted by any closures see the alert, the alerts will appear on every page of the site. Please be sure to read the alert to determine if the closure impacts you specifically.

Colorado Springs Center

If the center will be closed due to severe weather conditions, a recorded message should be available at  719-661-7947 or 800-232-1749. When possible, day closures will be announced between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. Evening closures will be announced by 3 p.m. If a severe weather warning is issued while you are on site, remain in your building and await further instructions. Make contact with University administration through one designated party in your facility or monitor news stations for instructions. Faculty who are hampered by severe weather and cannot make it to Colorado Springs should contact Jeanie York at 970-590-9773 AND your program coordinator. If a calling tree is used to communicate information to your class, you should then activate your tree.
