4.6 Adverse Weather (Campus Closings)

The college President will make a decision concerning changes in schedules during all adverse weather conditions. Every effort will be made to make decisions prior to 6:00am for daytime operations and by 4:00pm for evening operations. When the decision is made to “Close”, no students, faculty, or staff will be required to report except for essential personnel as determined by the college President. When a late opening is announced due to weather, all classes and activities scheduled prior to the announced opening time are cancelled. Faculty, staff and students are not expected to arrive on campus until the published opening time. The class schedule resumes at the published opening time. If a class or activity for that day includes time before and after the published opening time, then that class or activity should begin at the published opening time. For example, in a situation where a late opening is announced at 10:00 a.m. on a Friday:

  • A class scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and end at 9:50 a.m. on Friday would not meet.
  • A class scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and end at 10:20 a.m. on Friday would meet for 20 minutes (10 to 10:20 a.m.
  • A class scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. and end at 10:50 a.m. would meet for the regularly scheduled 50 minutes.
In some situations, short term continuing education classes may be cancelled completely in a late opening. Consult your instructor to find out whether this applies.

4.14 Communicable Diseases

Persons who know, or have a reasonable basis for believing, that they are infected with a communicable disease have an ethical and legal obligation to conduct themselves in accordance with such knowledge, to protect themselves and others.  Faculty and staff are urged to report information to the personnel officer and students are urged to report this information to the dean of student services.

    All information shall remain confidential.  Only persons with a need to know will be in­formed, and only with the direct knowledge of the employee or student.

  1. Persons infected with a communicable disease shall not be excluded from enrollment or employment, or restricted in their access to Catawba Valley Community College's services or facilities, unless medically based judgments in individual cases establish that exclusion or restriction is necessary to assure the pro-tection and welfare of the individual or other members of the college community.

  2. The assessment of an employee or employees of a contractor or contracted service with a suspected communicable disease and the final determination of that employee's ability to remain on the job shall be made by the president, after consultation with the vice president of academic and student affairs, director of human resources, and based on recommendations from the local health authorities. If an employee or employee of a contractor or contracted service is found to have a communicable disease, the president may prohibit attendance or participating in work at the college until a letter or certificate is obtained from one or more licensed physicians and/or public health officials stating that the attendance of the employee or employee of a contractor or contracted service no longer constitutes a health risk to other employees and students at the college.

  3. The assessment of a student with a suspected communicable disease and the final determination of that student's ability to remain in college shall be made by the dean of student services, based upon recommendations from local health authorities. If a student is found to have a communicable disease, the dean of student services may prohibit attendance at the college until a letter or certificate is obtained from one or more licensed physicians and/or public health officials stating that the attendance of the student no longer constitutes a health risk to employees and other students at the college.

  4. Education about communicable diseases is contained in the CVCC Hazard Communication Program which includes Blood Borne Pathogens information. This is required training for all CVCC employees and is located on the CVCC Human Resources web page and in written form in the H.R. office.
