Members of the University of Maine community are reminded that the inclement weather policy is online (umaine.edu/weatherpolicy), complete with the best options for getting up-to-date information about delays and class cancellations.
For the most timely notification of weather-related class cancellations or postponements, members of the University of Maine community are strongly encouraged to sign up for text and/or email message alerts (umaine.edu/emergency).
Notifications also are posted on the UMaine website (umaine.edu) and portal; in FirstClass folders (Announcements & Alerts; Provost/Academic Affairs and UMaine Forum); and on University of Maine Facebook (facebook.com/universityofmaine) and Twitter (twitter.com/umainenews). These notification options are considered the most reliable options.
In addition, updates can be heard by calling 581.SNOW (1.800.581.SNOW outside the local area), with early morning notifications recorded by 6 a.m., and others made throughout the day. Local media also are notified of UMaine’s weather-related cancellations and delays.
