From Lane Tait, Vice President
Undergraduate* spring semester start is delayed due to repairs that are being made to one of the gas lines that serves several residence halls and classroom buildings on campus. There is no safety issue; that line is temporarily shut down, however it leaves those buildings without heat and hot water.
After consultation with the contractor, we are moving back the beginning of the semester one more step, so please read carefully and follow this schedule:
- Friday, January 22nd: spring orientation will take place beginning at noon, with welcome at 1 pm at previously announced locations in CCAC.
- Saturday, January 23rd: residence halls will be open beginning at 3 pm for continuing students and full dining will be available.
- Sunday, January 24th: the Bookstore will be open from 1-6 pm for securing textbooks.
- Sunday, January 24th: Academic Jump Start will be held in the River Room from 1:30-3:30 pm.
- Monday, January 25th: classes will begin at 8 am.
*The BSN Nursing program schedule remains unchanged.
SCHREINER UNIVERSITY EMERGENCY OPERATIONS PLAN
SCHREINER STUDENTS & EMPLOYEES: You are strongly encouraged to sign up for Mountaineer Alert. It is an emergency-only text message and e-mail alert system that is free and designed to get you immediate information about campus emergency situations, such as a security issue or weather closure.
INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY
If an emergency closing or delay in opening Schreiner University is necessary, all lost work will be a paid absence for all full and 3/4 time employees, to be pro-rated accordingly. If an employee has scheduled benefit leave during the closing(s), and is not called in to work by the University, then the employee’s benefit leave will be used.
Employees should phone the main switchboard number at (830) 896-5411 or the Schreiner University public Web site at www.schreiner.edu (click on 'Emergency Notification'), where posted messages will notify employees and students of any official University closing or delay due to inclement weather. Unless a closing or delay is announced, employees and students will be expected to report for work and class at the usual time.
The decision to dismiss employees before the end of a workday due to hazardous weather conditions will be relayed verbally or by e-mail by a Vice President of the University. This lost time for employees will also be considered a paid absence for all full and 3/4 time employees who did not have scheduled benefit leave.
Local radio stations - The Ranch 92.3 (announces closings beginning at 6 a.m.) and KRVL 94.3 (announces closings at 7 a.m.) and the major San Antonio radio and television stations will also be notified of all closings. Employees should not rely on what the radio station announces, but should telephone the University’s main line to find out the status.
