Closings & Delays

Closings and Delays

Weather-related closings and delays

Sign up for LourdesALERT to receive text messages in the event of an emergency on campus.

When considering closing or delaying the opening of Lourdes, the Administration takes into account a number of factors, including:

  • Local and regional weather forecasts
  • The County Snow Emergency Level
  • Road condition information from the Ohio Department of Transportation
  • The status of comparable institutions (universities, colleges, businesses)

Students are asked not to call the Lourdes to inquire about classes. Classes will meet unless a closing / delay is posted on the website and announced through the media and LourdesALERT.

The first notification of a closing or delay for weather or for any other reason will be via the Lourdes website. Announcements will follow on the radio and television stations listed to the right.
