Closing Procedure

ALERT ME NOW Emergency Preparedness


CURRENT STATUS:

College’s regular schedule in effect, Mon. – Fri., 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


Closing Procedure:

President Mercer will determine whether the campus will be closed or remain open, whether classes will be cancelled or delayed in starting, and when there may be an early closing. You may call the College Closings/Special Announcements hotline for this information at (201) 236-2902. (This information will not routinely be available by calling the College’s automated attendant.) You will also receive e-mail if you have a Ramapo account and information regarding the College closings will also be posted on the Ramapo Web page. Additionally, appropriate information will be provided to the radio stations listed to the right.

YOU SHOULD BE GUIDED BY INSTRUCTIONS FOR RAMAPO COLLEGE FACULTY, STAFF, AND STUDENTS, NOT STATE OFFICE CLOSINGS ORDERED BY THE GOVERNOR.

If the College is open, students and faculty are advised to use their best judgment about local road conditions in making a decision about attending classes during inclement weather.

a. Utilize any allowed absences wisely, in view of possible snow conditions.

b. Contact your professor and/or another student in your class for assignments if you are absent from a class due to weather conditions.

Early Closing (all classes cancelled after an appointed time), and Delayed Opening (morning classes cancelled or shortened) Guidelines:

If it is possible for a class to meet for at least an hour before an Early Closing time or at least an hour after a Delayed Opening time, the class will meet – it is not cancelled.

If necessary, due to a series of missed classes, the College may deem an alternative day as a make-up day.

A recorded message about a Cancelled Exam Make-up Schedule (if required) will be available on (201) 236-2902.
