INCLEMENT WEATHER

The safety of Fleming College faculty and students is paramount at all times.  When inclement weather arises it is the responsibility of the individual to use sound judgment to determine whether or not travel is a reasonable risk.  Fleming College’s Class Cancellation and Campus protocol can be found at https://department.flemingcollege.ca/security/emergency-procedures/class-cancellations-campus-closures/.  The principles in this document apply to both on-campus and school-delivered dual credit courses.

In the case of an inclement weather event all faculty shall:

  • Check local media to learn of college and/or school closures and bus cancellations
  • Make a responsible choice about safe travel to and from the college or school
  • Notify the secondary school teacher, your Chair/Dean and Kate McGartland, Director, Student & Academic Experience as soon as possible if class is to be cancelled
  • Work with the secondary school teacher and relevant college staff to reschedule the class

SCHOOL BUS CANCELLATION

In the event of school bus cancellation it is unlikely that student attendance would be sufficient to justify delivering the class on that day.  Do not travel to the school.  Cancel the course for that day and reschedule in collaboration with the secondary school teacher.

Please notify the secondary school teacher, your Chair/Dean and Kate McGartland, Director, Student & Academic Experience as soon as possible if class is to be cancelled. 

ILLNESS

In case of illness faculty shall:

  • Notify the secondary school teacher, your Chair/Dean and Kate McGartland, Director, Student & Academic Experience soon as possible
  • Work with the secondary school teacher and relevant college staff to reschedule the class

PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITY DAYS AND HOLIDAYS

It is the responsibility of faculty and secondary school teachers to work together to reschedule any courses that are cancelled due to PA days or holidays.  Please notify the secondary school teacher, your Chair/Dean and Kate McGartland, Director, Student & Academic Experience as soon as possible.
