Cancelling Classes

In the event that a situation (illness, emergency, etc.) prevents you from meeting a regularly scheduled class, ensure you notify the appropriate parties as soon as possible:

  • Contact your dean and/or manager
  • Make every effort to notify each student
  • Notify security
  • Notify Manager on Duty (night class)
  • Notify HR (if applicable)

If you’re unable to contact all appropriate parties, at minimum notify your dean and/or manager. Ask them to handle other communication.

The person receiving your cancellation should also coordinate a note on the classroom door.

This applies to unexpected, short-term absences. If you are planning/need to be gone for a longer period of time, you will need to work out appropriate coverage for your class(es) with your dean or manager.
