Hurricane Florence Update – Classes Cancelled Monday

Posted on Saturday, September 15th, 2018 by Kristi Dellay Reese under Archived, Emergency Management, Weather Alerts.
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!

Hurricane Florence

Posted on Wednesday, September 12th, 2018 by Kristi Dellay Reese under Archived, Emergency Management, Weather Alerts.
Update 09/12/2018 @ 10:15 AM

Dear Campus Community,

UNC Greensboro, in consultation with regional, state and national agencies and experts, continues to closely monitor the progress and path of Hurricane Florence. We recognize that the path of the storm has shifted and predictions around impacts for the Triad are changing. We must remain vigilant as this situation evolves and continue, as always, to ensure the safety of our UNCG community.

The latest information shows a potentially reduced impact for our immediate area. That said, this remains a very dangerous storm and we urge people to continue to take it seriously. Please continue to monitor information from the National Weather Service in Raleigh for the latest.

Many school systems, public institutions and other facilities have also made decisions to close or reduce operations. As a result, many students, faculty and staff have made various plans based on the available information. This storm remains unpredictable, especially until it makes landfall. We will continue with our current plans as stated here.

It is our hope that the impact on UNCG and our region is less than anticipated.  We will continue to make decisions to best protect our community, students andemployees. We will continue to provide updates throughout this event.

Thank you.

According to the National Weather Service in Raleigh, Hurricane Florence could impact the Triad area with significant rain and high winds as soon as Wednesday.

We are closely monitoring the forecast and communicating with all of our on- and off- campus partners. The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our top priority.

For information on how to plan and prepare please visit ReadyNC.

We will provide updates throughout the week via email, spartanalert.uncg.edu and the university’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

Posted on Monday, January 9th, 2017 by Emergency Management under Archived, Weather Alerts.

Our utmost concern is for the safety of our students, staff, and faculty. Facilities crews have worked diligently and made significant progress with snow and ice removal. However, current weather predictions indicate that the temperature will remain below freezing overnight, resulting in freezing of runoff and remaining snow. Opening at 10:00 AM will allow the crews additional time to address trouble spots. Because the safety and well-being of the UNCG community is our priority, you should assess your personal situation to determine whether it is safe for you to travel to campus.

Staff will continue to follow Condition 2: Suspended Operations through 9:59 AM.

  • The University will remain open only for critical services through this time.

  • Employees designated or temporarily assigned as mandatory should report to work as directed.

  • All other employees should not report to work until 10:00 AM.

  • Leave-earning employees must code available leave from any work time missed during a Condition 2 event, unless the supervisor authorized off site work arrangements.

Beginning at 10:00 AM, staff will follow Condition 1: Reduced Operations. The University is open.

  • The institution remains largely open, but may have some reduced operations due to limited staffing.

  • Mandatory employees must report to or remain at work unless otherwise notified.

  • Non-mandatory staff should use their discretion in determining their safety to report to, leave early from, arrive late to, or not report to work, with timely notice to their supervisor.

  • Leave-earning employees must code available leave from any work time missed during a Condition 1 event, unless the supervisor authorized off site work arrangements.

For additional questions regarding the policy please visit:  https://hrs.uncg.edu/Leave_Management/Adverse_Weather/

An update regarding the status of campus operations for Wednesday, January 11th will be provided by 4:00 PM tomorrow. Please monitor the Spartan Alert page (http://spartanalert.uncg.edu) for additional information and the status of particular operations and events. Again, please exercise caution and make travel decisions that are in the best interest of your safety.
