College to test mass notification system

SUNY New Paltz will perform an audible test of its mass notification speaker system on Monday, March 2, at approximately 1 p.m.

Members of the New Paltz community may hear a series of loud tones followed by a voice indicating that this is only a TEST of the College’s emergency notification system.

This system is only activated in accordance with the College’s Emergency Response Plan and at the discretion of select members of the campus’ Emergency Management Team. For more information about the College’s emergency communications or response plan, visit the Emergency Management website at www.newpaltz.edu/emergency.

Classes that begin before 5 p.m. are cancelled; offices are open. A decision about evening classes will be made at 2 p.m. consistent with our inclement weather protocol.

Please stay tuned for additional messages regarding evening classes via this website, the INFO line and NP Alert. We’d like to remind the campus community of the College’s Inclement Weather/Emergency Cancellations and Delays Policy. Please check individual office closings on the office closings website. Closings will be listed as they are made available.

State offices may be closed due to weather conditions only by order of the Governor. Because we are a state university, we follow state policies regarding office closings. SUNY New Paltz’s president is authorized to suspend campus activities, but can give non-teaching professional staff or classified civil service personnel time off without charge to leave credits only in very limited circumstances. In a situation where there is inclement weather, but offices are open, individuals must use their best judgment as to whether or not they feel comfortable traveling on the roadways. The College asks that non-essential employees notify supervisors of their planned absence, and their intention to use their leave credits as appropriate.
