In the event that a class meeting is canceled, the instructor will notify the students as well as the administrative coordinator of the school who will post a notice on the classroom door.
Weather Related Closures
During closures of campus, college offices are closed, on-campus classes are canceled (students are expected to complete all assigned work and be in touch with faculty through means that have been communicated in the syllabus), and all college events are canceled including athletic events. Additionally, the Shuttle Bus will not run. Residence Halls and Dining Facilities will remain open, and specific essential personnel will be on campus to provide assistance.
If it becomes necessary to close campus, delay opening or close early, the College will utilize the following standard communication methods:
- Emergency Notification System (ENS). We encourage all members of the Mount Ida College community to log on to ENS and confirm their information is current and accurate. Update by clicking on this LINK and using your Mount Ida College email and MiWeb password, you will be logged into the system.
- Announcements will also go out through the official Twitter and Facebook accounts and in MiWeb web portal.
- Changes and updates will be communicated on the Mount Ida College web page and Mount Ida Email.
- The following local media organizations will also be contacted to post closure and delay statuses: WBZ (Ch. 4), WBZ Radio, WCVB (Ch. 5), WHDH (Ch. 7 and 56), WFXT (Ch. 25)
As most closures are weather-related, this is a reminder to all of those with vehicles that it will become necessary for vehicles to be moved during a snow event, and appropriate instructions and notifications will be sent. Please have your car outfitted with proper weather related equipment such as scrapers and small shovels in the event that you have to clear off your car. Shovels are not available at Campus Police, Facilities or Residence Life.
