Because of the unique nature of responsibilities at a residential institution, it is very difficult to "close" for inclement weather. Many employees need to be at work to provide essential services for students. During times of inclement weather when classes are canceled, normal expectations of employee attendance will be liberalized. This means that employees should use their judgment with respect to whether or not to come to or remain at work. The policy with respect to compensation will be the same as for personal absences from work (i.e., persons will be expected to either make up the time, report it as vacation/personal days, or take it as unpaid leave). This policy applies to office, physical plant and administrative employees.
