Storm Update

Posted on Monday, September 17th, 2018 by Zachary R. Smith under Archived, Emergency Management, Police - General Information.
Update 9/17/18 @ 8:45

Dear UNCG Community,

The impacts of Hurricane Florence will be felt around our region for a very long time. On our campus, we are able to return to normal operations, but we recognize this is not true across the state. Recovery will take time. We know many in our community have been directly affected by this storm.

As announced on Saturday, in consultation with local, state and federal officials, it remains our intention to be fully operational beginning Tuesday morning, September 18.  All classes will resume, and most other activities and events will take place as scheduled. All offices, services and other functions will be operating as normal.  Although the campus is generally safe to navigate, the heavy rains have made for slippery conditions in certain places. Please be careful as we continue to manage a few ongoing issues related to the storm.

We recognize that not everyone in our community will be able to return to normalcy at this time.  Those experiencing personal and family challenges have our support and understanding.

Students who believe the storm will affect their ability to attend classes when the University resumes operation are urged to contact their professors and carefully monitor Canvas and other communications channels for class-specific updates. Faculty will work with students who are facing challenges returning to their normal schedules. Students who have been impacted by this event and need support are encouraged to contact the Dean of Students Office at 336.334.5514 or the Counseling Center at 336.334.5874.

Employees with any concerns or questions about Employee Assistance Programs, benefits or leave should contact Human Resources via the website or email (benefits@uncg.edu) for further information. Those interested in updates from across the UNC System should visit http://www.northcarolina.edu/florence.

Please continue to monitor all local and regional weather forecasts and road condition reports when planning travel. We look forward to seeing our students, faculty and staff back on campus and in class, even as our thoughts remain with those most directly impacted by Hurricane Florence.

Thank you.

Tropical Depression Florence Update

Posted on Sunday, September 16th, 2018 by Zachary R. Smith under Archived, Emergency Management, Police - General Information.
Update 9/16/2018 @ 9:30 AM

Dear UNCG Community,

As we have seen, the impacts of Hurricane Florence have been substantial and widespread.  There will be lasting effects throughout our region. Across the state, numerous roads and highways are closed or unsafe for travel, and there are significant recovery and emergency management efforts underway.

As announced on Saturday, in consultation with local, state and federal officials, UNCG (like many other state universities) has canceled classes for Monday, September 17 to allow more time for the many students who left the Triad in advance of the storm to more safely return.

Additionally, the University will operate at Condition 1 for employees on Monday. Offices will reopen, and non-mandatory employees should use their discretion in determining their ability to safely report to work.

We expect to return to normal operations and a full academic and activity schedule on Tuesday, September 18.  Most regular campus services will be available as normal for students effective Monday morning.

Students who believe the storm will affect their ability to attend classes when the University resumes operation are urged to contact their professors to make appropriate arrangements. Please also carefully monitor Canvas and other communications channels for class-specific updates. Faculty will work with students who are facing challenges returning to their normal schedules.

We know many of our students have family, friends and loved ones who may be impacted by this storm. If you are in need of urgent mental health resources, please contact the Counseling Center’s after-hours support by calling 336.334.5874. Employees with any concerns or questions about Employee Assistance Programs, benefits or leave should contact Human Resources via the website or email (benefits@uncg.edu) for further information.

Above all else, we ask everyone to consider their safety and monitor all local and regional weather forecasts and road condition reports when planning travel.  We will continue to monitor the situation.  You can expect another communication on Monday to confirm plans or address any new changes as conditions evolve.

Thank you.

Hurricane Florence Update – Classes Cancelled Monday

Update 09/15/2018 @ 7:35 PM

Dear UNCG Community,

As we look ahead to the coming week, the immediate and long-term impacts of Hurricane Florence remain significant. Weather is still a substantial challenge across our state.

In the interest of creating the safest possible conditions for our students and based on the guidance of local and state agencies, UNCG has elected to cancel classes for Monday. This should allow for safer travel conditions to develop in much of the state. We will also move to Condition 1 for employees on Monday. Non-mandatory employees should use their discretion in determining their ability to safely report to work. We anticipate resuming full operations and academic activities on Tuesday.

Students are urged to exercise good judgement and monitor local weather forecasts and road conditions when determining travel plans. Those who believe the storm will affect their ability to attend classes when the University resumes operation are urged to contact their professors and seek help if needed from the Dean of Students office. Make decisions that keep you safe.

We recognize many in our Spartan community – students, faculty and staff – have family, friends and loved ones who have been directly impacted by this storm. We also understand that many of our students may be dealing with stress as they manage their way through individual difficulties. We are here to help you. Students needing additional guidance and support should please contact the Counseling Center’s after-hours support by calling 336.334.5874. The Dean of Students office will also be operational next week. Employees with any concerns or questions about benefits or leave should contact Human Resources via the website or email (benefits@uncg.edu) for further information.

We are working with partners across the state to continuously assess the situation, and we will communicate further as needed.

Thank you and be safe!

Update 9/15/2018 @ 9 AM

As Tropical Storm Florence continues to impact weather conditions across the region, we are continuing to manage the effects here in Greensboro. To this point we have experienced some heavy rain and gusty winds, but our campus is well prepared, and we have no significant impacts to our facilities, services and capabilities. We appreciate the cooperation, support and flexibility of our students, faculty and staff during these somewhat unpredictable days.

As previously stated, we expect to be back to normal operations by Sunday evening, and plan to be fully ready for all academic and other UNCG activities on Monday. If that situation changes we will alert you. If you are interested in conditions at UNCG, please visit our weather cam and monitoring system here. Please continue to monitor the National Weather Service for the latest information. Those interested in updates from across the UNC System should visit http://www.northcarolina.edu/florence.

We know some in our community will continue to face challenges, with family, friends and loved ones in areas more substantially impacted than ours. We are here to help you. Students needing additional guidance and support should please contact the Counseling Center’s after-hours support by calling 336.334.5874. For emergencies, call the University Police at 336.334.4444. Employees with any concerns or questions about benefits or leave should contact Human Resources via the website or email (benefits@uncg.edu) for further information.
