Auraria Campus Early Closure 11.17.22

Hey CityHawks,

We are expecting four to six inches of snowfall over the course of the rest of today, Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022.

The Auraria and AMC campus locations will close beginning at 3 p.m. today. The decision to close early was made due to the limited ability to provide safe conditions on campus and the travel conditions to and from campus.  For more information about how this closure impacts the rest of the Auraria Campus, visit the AHEC website.

What does this mean for classes:

If an in-person class is scheduled to begin after the time of early closure, it is canceled. For example, if the campus closes at 3:00 p.m., classes that start at 3:00 p.m. or later are canceled. Students should check their course in D2L for information about alternative delivery of the day’s content

If an in-person class in progress is scheduled to end after the time of campus closure, the class session must be dismissed at the campus closure time. For example, if the campus is closing at 3:00 p.m., a class that is normally scheduled to meet from 2:00 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. will stop meeting at 3:00 p.m.

Students should discuss with their instructor or check their course in D2L for information about alternative delivery of the remainder of the day’s content.

What does this mean for employees:

Regular employees are required to work from an appropriate remote location in the event the College shifts to remote operations. Employees who are unable to work from an appropriate remote location must communicate directly with their supervisor and Human Resources.

During campus closures or remote operations, temporary employees (including retirees hired into temporary positions) and student employees are not eligible for administrative leave. Temporary employees and student employees whose duties and responsibilities can be completed from an appropriate remote location will receive instruction from their immediate supervisor and are eligible for pay for hours worked if approved by the supervisor.

Stay safe, CityHawks.
