Missouri S&T will shift to remote operations from 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 2, through 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 3, due to expected severe weather conditions.
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.
Employees fall into one of the following categories when a shift to remote work and learning takes place:
Staff should prepare to have the necessary equipment, such as laptops or cellphones, on hand for telework. Employees also should make sure they have the latest virtual private network (VPN) client installed. To download and install the latest version, go to mst.edu/services/vpn.
For information on how winter weather is affecting any off-campus activities, including off-campus meetings or conferences, please refer to the host location.
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:
Missouri S&T’s Spring O’Rama Involvement Fair will continue as planned at 11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 4, in the Havener Center.
Staff should contact their supervisor if they are unsure which category they fit. As always, faculty, staff and students are expected to exercise good judgment when deciding if they can travel safely to campus during inclement weather.
