Getting Around Campus Safely

Students are urged to stay inside. If you must be outside, take all necessary precautions to keep yourself warm, dry and safe. Dress so that no skin is exposed. During cold weather, your personal safety should be your top priority.

Staff Information

Staff who are able to report to work safely are expected to do so. However, the college does not expect any staff member to take unnecessary risks for work. Employees should exercise their best judgement with regard to road conditions and other safety concerns.

Employees who determine that it is unsafe to come to work should notify their supervisor as soon as possible. Per our college policy, staff may use vacation time or leave without pay for lost time, or work with supervisors on arrangements to make up lost time.

Plans for Resuming Classes

Alma College classes will resume on Friday, Feb. 1.
