Student Emergency Calls

The only option the college has to locate a student on campus is via the student's class schedule. A student cannot be located if he/she is not in class. There must be an extreme emergency to justify interrupting the classroom. An extreme emergency would include a sick child needing to be picked up at daycare; a serious injury to a family member; a death in the family; or other traumatizing event. The classroom will not be disturbed to deliver a message to remind the student to take care of personal business matters such as work schedules; keeping doctor appointments; to pay bills; or to stop by the grocery store. These issues have to be managed by the student outside the classroom. The student must make sure he/she communicates daily with relevant family members and others about their whereabouts especially if their schedule changes in any way. Remember, a student cannot be located unless he/she is in class should a legitimate emergency arise.
