Emergency Delays & Inclement Weather Plan


Morehead State University has developed a plan for announcing emergency delays and cancellations. These are most often associated with inclement weather and unpredictable weather patterns occurring in the winter months.

The University will select one of two options when dealing with delays that may affect the daily schedule of students, faculty, staff and/or visitors to the main campus. When road conditions are problematic, MSU employees and students should exercise good judgment in traveling to and from campus. Those concerned that weather conditions make it too dangerous for travel to campus should follow pre-determined procedures regarding class attendance or work assignments.

Plan A: MSU is closed. All administrative offices will be closed and classes will not meet.

Plan B: MSU will operate on a two-hour delay. Offices will open at 10:00 a.m. Students begin the day with the 10:20 a.m. class.

Essential service personnel will continue to report when either plan is in operation. Each division will identify essential personnel and services to be maintained. Employees should direct questions/concerns to their immediate supervisor.

Decisions regarding regional campus closings and classes held at off-campus sites will be made on an individual basis as appropriate for the service area and situations in the region.

Notification: Morehead State University uses e2Campus/Omnilert to notify the campus community of safety, weather, and other emergencies by text message and email. Alerts are also delivered by email to all MSU students and employees, as well as through the MSU website (www.moreheadstate.edu), Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/MoreheadStateUniversity), and Twitter (@moreheadstate). Please subscribe to and manage these services at http://www.moreheadstate.edu/eaglealerts/. Notices are also released to area radio and television stations.
