Due to continuing severe winter weather conditions, Missouri S&T will extend remote operations through 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24. Buildings will be closed for all but essential campus services.

Classes will be held remotely. Instructors should communicate this shift with their students as soon as possible, share plans for their classes and provide any necessary resources, such as Zoom links or online learning materials. If a class has significant in-person requirements, such as laboratories or clinical classes, arrangements will be made to address the requirements at a later time.

Avoid unnecessary travel. Please avoid any unnecessary travel to give road crews the time and space they need to treat the roads. Reschedule any planned work-related travel if at all possible. If you must travel, drive safely and allow plenty of time to reach your destination.

Vaccine clinic canceled. The COVID-19 vaccine clinic, originally scheduled Feb. 24, has been rescheduled for 10 a.m.-noon Tuesday, March 1, at the Kinyon-Koeppel Grand Hall in the Hasselmann Alumni House. Other scheduled in-person events planned for Thursday that do not transition to virtual events will be postponed. Please contact the event organizer for details.

Essential on-campus services will continue but may be limited due to employee availability. These services may include (but aren’t limited to) the following:

  • Dining services for students: The Havener Center’s food court and T.J. Dining Hall will remain open. For menus, hours of operation and more details, visit dineoncampus.com/mst
  • Custodial and groundskeeping services in some areas, such as residential halls. 
  • University Police: Missouri S&T’s police department is open 24/7 and can be contacted at 573-341-4300. In an emergency, please dial 911. 

Information for employees. Employees fall into one of the following categories when a shift to remote work and learning takes place:

  • Those who aren’t required to work on-site and will telework from home or another location. Staff who do not telework must take paid time off — either personal or vacation days.
  • Those who cannot carry out their duties through telework and who are instructed that they are not required on-site to work will be compensated.
  • Those who are non-exempt (hourly) and are required to work on-site may be eligible to receive premium pay; those who are required to work on-site and choose not to must take paid time off — either personal or vacation days.
