College Cancellation/Delayed Opening Policy

During inclement weather conditions on campus, the College strives to operate on the principle of maintaining services for our students without unrealistically compromising safety.

Should the College need to close due to a weather emergency all operations including classes, work, events, activities, etc. will be cancelled. The only exception will be for employees who are assigned to work in essential service areas, as defined by the College. These areas include Facilities, Stonehill College Police Department, dining operations, and other personnel as needed.

The Hill Alert system will be used to announce College closings. If you wish to receive notification via text on your cell phone you can input or update your cell phone number by visiting the Employee Services page in myHill and clicking on “update addresses and phones” section.

Decisions to close the College will be made via telephone recording by 6:30 a.m. on (508) 565-5000. In the event the line is busy, please try again.

You will also find closing announcements on WBZ AM Radio 1030; WBZ TV Channel 4 Boston; WCVB TV Channel 5 Boston, WHDH TV Channel 7 Boston, WXFT TV Channel 25 Boston, and Stonehill Channel 70.

In the event that the College does not close but conditions in your locale make it impossible to travel, please use your best judgment. Safety should always be the top concern. When prevented from coming to the College for work because of weather conditions, employees should use accrued time off.

Partial Closings

Also should the College elect to delay opening by two-hours on any given business day, all classes and events scheduled to begin prior to 10 a.m. will be cancelled. Exception will be classes designated as “all-day.”

If a delay or cancellation occurs during the final exam period, the missed exam will be re-scheduled either during the make-up time period or on the day following the last date of scheduled exams.

Based upon weather conditions, the College may also close early. We will make every attempt to announce the decision two-hours before the time that the College will close.
