Evening Classes and Snow Schedule

EVENING CLASSES

Evening classes are defined as those classes that begin at 4:30 p.m. or later. The decision on night classes will be made and communicated by 3:00 p.m.

It is the instructor's responsibility to dismiss class if the weather becomes inclement during evening classes.

EVENING SNOW SCHEDULE:

From 4:30 p.m. onward: Classes start ½ hour late and end ½ hour early.

SATURDAY CLASSES

It is the instructor's responsibility to dismiss class if the weather becomes inclement during Saturday classes. 

SATURDAY SNOW SCHEDULE:

Saturday morning - Classes start 45 minutes late
Saturday afternoon (after 12:00 p.m.) - Classes start at regular time

 

ONLINE CLASSES

Online courses and online sessions of blended courses at Fontbonne University will not be cancelled for inclement weather, even when all campus locations are closed. Students and faculty are expected to access their courses as usual.

In cases when a weather emergency creates a network or power outage, students should refer to the network outage policies established by faculty in the course syllabus.

If students regularly use the computer or Internet resources of a location other than their home/residence hall (work, library, etc.), and inclement weather makes travel to that location impossible, students should contact their instructor to discuss options for completing work in a timely manner. In such cases, instructors will decide what on an appropriate course of action. 

Students working in geographical areas other than St. Louis, Mo., and experiencing inclement weather not occurring in St. Louis that prohibits participation in online courses and online sessions of blended courses, should make every effort to communicate their situation to the instructor of their course.

Faculty members working in geographical areas other than St. Louis, Mo., and experiencing inclement weather not occurring in St. Louis that prohibits participation in online courses and online sessions of blended courses, should make every effort to communicate their situation to the department chair/dean and the Registrar.
