Inclement Weather Policy

Thursday, January 12, 2012

During the winter season, inclement weather sometimes necessitates the cancellation of classes. Rather than calling your Center, please take advantage of the following communication options:

There are a few ways to know if your class is canceled. The easiest is to register for Information Alerts via the Crisis Alert System on JBU's intranet, Eaglenet. The CAS is location specific and is the most up-to-date information available about class cancellation. Note: class cancellations are an information alert--not a crisis alert--so make sure to register for Information Alerts to hear when classes are canceled. Alerts are sent to your JBU email and via a phone call. You may also choose to receive information via text messaging or to an alternative email address. In most circumstances, the decision to cancel is made around 3 p.m. Keep in mind, if there is no notification, it's safe to assume you are having class.

In addition, we will post closing information on each Center's Facebook page:
- Fort Smith
- Central Arkansas (Hot Springs and North Little Rock)
- Rogers, Harrison and Walmart
In addition, the information will be posted to the JBU Degree Completion website, on the program's Twitter page and broadcast on local television and radio stations when possible.

When classes are canceled, expect to work with your instructor to determine arrangements for making up the class.

Your safety is our utmost concern, so if classes are being held but road conditions make it too dangerous for you to attend, please contact your instructor as soon as possible to determine how to submit your missed assignment(s).

Again, we ask you not to call the Center so that we can keep the phone lines open.

Best wishes for a safe and successful term!
