We advise all students and staff to be aware of special conditions. Gettysburg remains under flood watch and the saturated ground will make trees vulnerable at lower wind speeds than usual. Please exercise common sense, particularly when there is the potential for power loss. Updates and important information will be sent via Redactor email or RAVE text message system to cell phones.
Please report infiltrating water or building damage, or power loss to the main switchboard 717-334-6286 during office hours (8:30am-4:30pm) and the Emergency number after hours (717-752-5139).
Seminary Policy regarding weather issues:
In the event of inclement weather in Gettysburg and the surrounding area, which makes it hazardous for Seminary personnel to travel, senior staff may determine to close administrative offices and cancel scheduled programs. Notification will be posted on the Seminary website and distributed through other available media. Under such circumstances, essential personnel (e.g. maintenance and grounds) will be expected to report for work at such time as it is safe to do so. Professors of scheduled classes will determine whether or not to hold class (on campus if safety permits or via residential course website and utilizing other available technology), and will make every effort to notify their students. In the event a class is held, all reasonable efforts will be made to deliver course materials to those who were unable to attend. In making decisions whether or not to travel or move about on campus under potentially hazardous conditions, all members of the Seminary community are encouraged to give utmost attention to their own and others’ safety and well-being.
Weather related delays, cancellation of classes or closing of offices will be announced via the Seminary’s web site: www.ltsg.edu; on email through the Redactor list serve (Email);
Off Campus methods we use include broadcasters on WITF (radio) and WGAL NBC 8, and ABC 27 (television).
We will also be placing any weather related news on the seminary’s text messaging system and the seminary’s page on Facebook. If there is no one staffing the phone on the school’s main switchboard, there will be a phone message indicating any decision for delay or closing.
