T&D Policy for Delays and Closing

In preparation for the upcoming winter season, it’s time to think about ice, snow and the possibility of delays and closings by the university.  We want you to know what to expect in the event of any delays or closings, so we’ve instituted a policy for our workshops in these events.

Normal Schedule
If the university is operating under a normal schedule during ice and snow, then our workshops we be held as scheduled.

University Closing
If the university is closed due to weather-related events, any workshops held that day will be canceled and rescheduled.

One Hour Delay
If the university is on a one-hour delay (opening at 9:00 am), any morning workshops will begin at 9:00 am. Workshops scheduled to start later in the day will be held as planned.

Two Hour Delay
If the university is on a two-hour delay (opening at 10:00 am), any morning workshops will be canceled and rescheduled -- with the exception of University New Employee Orientation (which will start at the announced University opening time).  Workshops scheduled to start later in the day will be held as planned.

University New Employee Orientation (UNEO)
If the university is closed, UNEO will be canceled and participants will need to reschedule for a later session.  If there is a delay, UNEO will start at the announced University opening time.

Early Closing
If an early closing is announced, any workshops in progress will end at their scheduled time or at the announced closing time, whichever is earlier.  If there are workshops scheduled to start after an early closing is announced, those workshops will be canceled and rescheduled.  (i.e., it’s announced at 1:00 pm that the university will close at 3:00, a workshop starting at 1:30 will be canceled.)

T&D Workshops held at a UK HealthCare Location
Since HealthCare employees are not impacted by closings and delays, workshops typically are not cancelled.  However, if the instructor is unable to be present, attendees will be notified of the workshop cancellation as soon as possible.
