Weather Emergency Reminder
January 26, 2021
In the event of a cancellation or delay of in-person classes or activities, pertinent information and announcements are distributed in the following ways:
■ RAVE text and email*
■ Campus-wide email
■ Home page of the FSC website
■ FSC’s social media accounts: facebook.com/farmingdale, and
Twitter.com/farmingdalesc for updates
■ Electronic signs at campus entrances
■ News 12 Long Island
Please do not call University Police for the status of classes or the campus. It is vital to keep the University Police phone lines available for true emergencies. Likewise, do not call administrative departments or the campus operators.
FACULTY/STAFF: If you have specific questions, contact your supervisor. Some offices also maintain phone chains; your department head will know if this additional communication channel is being used in your department.
STUDENTS: If you have specific questions about the rescheduling of exams or assignments, contact your professor, academic department or your School dean’s office.
As weather events evolve and circumstances change, it is important to keep checking the website, your email account, and other communication venues for updates. Please note for when employees are directed to return to campus once the pandemic subsides: Even if classes are canceled, administrative and academic offices are customarily open, as only the Governor can order a complete closing of the campus. If offices are open, then staff who do not report to work must inform their supervisors and charge their accruals.
