When weather conditions develop or are forecasted that could alter the normal operations of the Lake Campus, the following guidelines will be used:
- In the event of severe weather (e.g., tornado, ice storm, blizzard),
the dean or designee will have the final authority to make the decision to
cancel classes or close the campus.
- Decisions will be based on the most current weather information available
at the time gathered from a variety of sources including the Ohio State Highway
Patrol, county sheriff's departments, weather reports, local forecasts, and
Campus Physical Plant.
- Off-campus course offerings, such as at the Vantage Career Center in
Van Wert, will not be held if: 1) Classes are cancelled at the Lake Campus,
or 2) the off-campus sites close due to inclement weather and cannot reopen
for evening courses.
- Canceled means that conditions are such that all classes are canceled. Staff who are designated Emergency Responders, Unit Managers and Essential Employees should remain on campus until all students and non-essential staff have left the facility.
Closed means that the building is not open and that only Emergency Responders should report, primarily buildings and grounds staff. This allows the buildings and grounds to conduct the needed clearing of snow with out interference of vehicles blocking areas of snow removal.
When inclement weather threatens and forces delays, cancellations, or closures, notification will be made to area radio and television stations as noted below. Also, as soon as any decision is made related to cancellations or closings at the campus, a message will be placed on the Lake Campus home page, as well as the central campus phone, informing callers of such cancellations or delays. You may simply dial the Student Services front desk to obtain the information: 1-800-237-1477 or 419-586-0300. Also, if you have opted to receive text messaging for the Lake Campus through the university, which you can do in WINGS Express via WINGS, you will receive an alert; however, please note that the delivery of text messages is based on your carrier and may not be the most reliable, timely source..
