It’s Snowing! Should I Stay or Should I Go?
The most reliable information regarding delayed openings and cancellations will be available at the MAIN UNIVERSITY NUMBER (301-687-4000, option 2) after 6 a.m. Notification of delays or closures will also be made through these outlets:
Everyone should sign up for Burg Alerts, which, in addition to weather notifications, will be used to alert the campus in any kind of emergency. They can be sent as text messages to your cell phones (standard texting rates apply) and as free e-mails. To sign up, click https://www.frostburg.edu/computing/fsualert/ or access the Technology page from the FSU front page. Look for the “Burg Alerts” link on the right side of the page.
Follow the instructions, using your FSU user name and password to access the site. Under “Services,” you have the option of having alerts sent to two cell numbers and six email addresses. Make sure to follow the validation steps to activate your choices.
You have the option of having alerts sent to two cell numbers and six email addresses, for example, if you want your family members to be informed. (They cannot sign up without your input.) This option is found under “Services.” Make sure to follow the validation steps to activate your choices.
Personnel compensation for closures or delays will be based on the appropriate cancellation/delay message as presented on the FSU voice-mail system. A reminder: Essential personnel are required to report to work in the event of any cancellation or delay. These individuals have been notified of their “essential” status by their department heads. If you are unsure of your status, please check with your supervisor.
Unless FSU closure is announced on the outlets above, WE ARE OPEN. The final decision with regard to your own personal safety resides with you. If, in your judgment, it is not safe for you to come to work or to class while the University is still open, you must contact your supervisor and provide this information. In the event that liberal leave is announced for employees, it is expected that everyone will make an effort to report to work and class. Employees will be charged for the appropriate leave time. The announcement of liberal leave DOES NOT cancel classes, nor does it relieve essential employees of their need to report to work during inclement weather.
Thank you. Stay warm, and be safe.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL UNIVERSITY POLICE OR THE COMPUTER HELP DESK FOR WEATHER-RELATED ANNOUNCEMENTS.
PLEASE DO CALL 301-687-4000, OPTION 2, or check the FSU Web site at www.frostburg.edu
LOCAL RADIO/TV STATIONS:
The following local radio/television stations will be notified in the event of a closing or delay:
WFWM (91.9 FM/96.3 FM)
WKLP - ESPN (1390 AM) Keyser
NOTE: If there are mixed messages in the media (one station says we’re open, another says we’re closed) – PLEASE call the University number (301-687-4000, option 2) for clarification. That number will always be the FINAL authority in case of confusion from other sources.
