KU Edwards Inclement Weather & Class Cancellations

Policy
Procedure
Purpose: 

To describe class cancellations due to inclement weather.

Applies to: 

All faculty, staff, students and campus visitors.

Campus: 
Edwards
Policy Statement: 

Edwards Campus administration determines the status of classes during inclement weather. A decision for morning classes (classes before 4 p.m.) will be made by 7 a.m. A decision for evening classes (classes beginning after 4 p.m.) will be made by 2 p.m. However, if the Lawrence Campus cancels their classes, the Edwards Campus will close also since most faculty have to drive to Edwards from Lawrence. Notice of cancellation will be on the Edwards Campus website, the class cancellation phone line (913-897-8499), and on local TV and radio stations.
