App State Cancels Classes Monday, Tuesday (2018-09-15 12:51:37)

All classes and academic obligations are canceled at Appalachian State University on Monday, Sept. 17, and Tuesday, Sept. 18.

Confidence is growing for the Boone area to experience significant potential impact from Hurricane Florence, and the safety of students, faculty and staff traveling to campus is paramount.

For non-faculty employees, the Adverse Weather Policy is in effect at Condition 1 (Reduced Operations) Monday, Sept. 17, and Tuesday, Sept. 18. Further decisions about employee status will be made by 5 p.m. Sunday.

Under Condition 1, the university remains open, but certain non-mandatory operations may be reduced due to more limited staffing. Mandatory employees must report to or remain at work. All other employees have the option to report late, leave early, or not work at all; however, the employee is responsible for informing his/her supervisory chain in a timely manner of all such decisions. Go to for more information, or contact your immediate supervisor with any questions.

For off-campus students, faculty and staff in need of safe shelter, the Quinn Center at 303 Stadium Drive will open at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15.

Never drive through flooded streets or around barricades – they are there to protect people from danger. Even shallow fast-moving water is dangerous. It takes only 6 inches of fast-moving water to knock over an adult. 12 inches of rushing water can carry away a small car, and 2 feet can carry away most vehicles.

During the time that classes are cancelled, gates to restricted parking areas are lifted and students, faculty, staff and the public can park in those lots. Always be mindful of signage. Some lots are prone to flooding.

As weather conditions develop, please use caution, and monitor and university email for any updates.
