Stay tuned when snow starts to fall

A cold blast from the Pacific Northwest is threatening to bring the season’s first snowfall to the Flagstaff area, and NAU faculty, staff and students should stay informed about the weather and road conditions.

During inclement weather the university can remain open for normal business, cancel classes or cancel all campus operations except for essential services on the Flagstaff campus.

The decision generally is made before 6 a.m., with the decision on canceling evening classes made between 3 and 4 p.m.

It's at this point that students, faculty and staff are notified through local media, e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, the NAU home page, MyNAU and the NAU Now phone line at 523-0007. If classes or business operations are canceled, the university also will send out an NAU Alert text message.

Students who feel unsafe driving to class should contact their instructors to determine how to make up classroom assignments. Employees should contact their supervisors or follow normal departmental procedures.

NAU's snow closure policy can be found online.
