Safety needs to be in the forefront of our minds and thoughts on a daily basis and especially so when weather and road conditions are less than ideal. Also, because we value our students, faculty, and staff, we recommend discretion when traveling in these conditions. We have identified our considerations, protocols, and procedures in this memorandum. Weather can be unpredictable and if we error, we intend to error on the side of safety.
Our leading indicators will be the weather warnings issued by the National Weather Service in St. Cloud and travel warnings issued by the State Patrol. Next, we will rely on the experience of our driving supervisors to determine that the conditions are becoming unsafe and to contact the Transportation Director to determine if, and when, we will discontinue busing service. As much advanced notice as possible (ideally 1-2 hours) will be given prior to shut down.
The Provost, Transportation Director (or his/her designee), CSB Security, and SJU Life Safety Departments will make the decision on whether or not driving conditions warrant a possible shut down. Shut downs before classes begin will be announced as soon as possible, preferably before 6:00 am.
