However, if your travel conditions prevent you from following this schedule today, please notify your professor if you cannot come to classes or your supervisor if you are not able to report to the office.

Thank you,

2021 Weather Advisory 2

Wednesday, February 17, 2021 (9:09 pm EST)

Members of the Barton College Community,

The College is closely monitoring the weather conditions for our area. A decision will be made by 6:30 a.m. on Thursday morning, February 18, should the on-campus operational schedule need to be delayed as a result of inclement weather.

2021 Weather Advisory 1

Wednesday, January 27, 2021 (5:33 pm EST)

Members of the Barton College Community,

Barton College has been monitoring the weather, and it seems likely that there will be some snow and slick roads in the area by sunrise tomorrow, Thursday, January 28, 2021.

Given that likelihood, Barton wants to ensure both the safety of its students, staff, and faculty, and the continuation of its operations. Therefore, the College will shift to remote instruction and remote work until 12:30 p.m. tomorrow afternoon.

However, essential staff should report to campus at their regular time, and essential services, including food service in the Culinary Center, will continue during the remote instruction and work periods in the morning.

Supervisors have the authority to determine which activities might not be effectively moved to remote work/instruction tomorrow morning.  Those activities, which cannot shift to remote, should either be delayed or cancelled for the morning.

As always, we encourage you to use good judgment and caution as you travel.

If you live in an area where the inclement weather prohibits your travel to classes or work tomorrow afternoon, please be in contact with your professors or supervisor to discuss your specific situation.

Weather Advisory for Thursday, November 12, 2020 – Campus Operations Discontinue at 2 p.m. Today

WEATHER Advisory for Thursday, November 12, 2020

Campus Operations Discontinue at 2 p.m. Today


Members of the Barton College Community,

We have been monitoring the inclement weather conditions today, and rain is forecast to continue into the evening.  The Wilson community has a flash flood warning currently in effect until 2:30 p.m.  We realize that flash flooding can occur at different rates in different locations, and our campus community members may live in areas that are being affected more heavily.

Therefore, the College has made the decision to close the campus offices for the remainder of the day and evening, beginning at 2 p.m. today.  Students in courses that meet after 2 p.m. should await communication from their faculty about whether course content will be moved online.   The Town Hall scheduled for faculty and staff this afternoon is cancelled.

The play “Pride of Doves” will continue this evening.  The Culinary Center will be open on campus until 8 p.m. this evening.

Please be safe and use an abundance of caution if you must travel this afternoon in the rain.  Be alert for flooded roadways and do not attempt to drive through standing water, which could be deeper than is visible to the driver or hiding a washed-out road.  Please also drive slowly in heavy rain to avoid hydroplaning.

Thank you,

Kathy Daughety                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Office of Public Relations
