Essential Services Policy Reminder

Nov. 2, 2020

This is the time of year when staff and their managers should review and/or update departmental procedures for essential services needed during emergencies or other conditions. This may be especially helpful this year as departments consider impacts to staffing and onsite presence as a result of the pandemic. The University will communicate delayed openings, early dismissals, or full closures through the TigerAlert notification system (formerly PTENS) and the weather emergency hotline at (609) 258-SNOW (7669). For more information, refer to the policy 5.1.6 Essential Services During Emergencies or Other Conditions or the Emergency Management website.
