11.  Emergency Closing Policy


At times an emergency closing of the institution may be declared by the President or another senior officer of the institution. Such closings, although rarely necessary, may be required because of extreme weather conditions or other emergencies. When such a closing occurs, public announcements will be made through radio stations WEST-AM, 1400 (WLEV-FM, 96.1); WAEB-AM, 790, (WAEB-FM, 104.1); and WFMZ-FM, 100.7.  When there is a threat of inclement weather or another type of emergency, please call the inclement weather hotline (610-625-7995) to hear of a school closing or other emergency information.


Commuting students who miss class during a snow emergency, winter weather advisory, or travel advisory may not be penalized for their absence if class is held.  Faculty who cancel class because of weather advisories or other emergencies when the College is otherwise open need to notify the registrar (daytime, or campus safety for classes beginning before 8AM) or the Comenius Center (summer and evening classes).
