More information:

Curtailment notification announcements are made by 5 a.m. for daytime and 2 p.m. for late afternoon/evening classes, when possible.  The decision to curtail operations are made because road conditions are dangerous, the campus is unprepared for parking and pedestrian traffic, or there are utility and power outages.  The decision to curtail typically relates to teaching, public service, and administration.

In the event of a power outage, please visit Public Service of New Hampshire.

Food Service & Campus Bookstore

When the main campus in Claremont is closed, or classes are canceled, the food service and the Campus Bookstore are closed as well.  Vending machines are always available on campus; and the bookstore can be accessed online at: http://www.rivervalley.edu/student-resources/bookstore

It may be necessary to close the food service operations or the Bookstore due to inclement weather or power outages regardless if curtailed operations are called.  Notices will be posted in all facilities as soon as decisions are made.

Use Common Sense

If we do not declare curtailed operations, all offices are open and all classes are held as scheduled.  We must naturally make our determination based on available weather forecasts and the predicted condition of the campus and immediate vicinity.

If staff consider that traveling conditions near their home are unsafe, they may choose to stay home.  They can take vacation or earned time, use accrued compensatory time, make prior arrangements with their supervisor to telework from home, or take advantage of another flexible work arrangement, as outlined in the employee handbook or collective bargaining agreement.
