Grand Rapids Instructional Site
P-3 Class Cancellation Policy
Determination of class cancellation will be made on a day-to-day, morning-to-afternoon basis. Although roads may be impassable in the early morning, snow/ice may have melted or been cleared by late morning or early afternoon. This procedure is unique to the Grand Rapids Pharmacy Practice Instructional Site because of issues associated with course scheduling and does not apply to fourth year clerkship courses. P-4 students should check with preceptors regarding cancellation policies.
MORNING CLOSINGS: The College will determine morning closings based on FSU-Grand Rapids campus closings. If FSU-GR is closed, then the Grand Rapids courses are cancelled for the morning. Students should listen to radio, TV and Internet announcements for FSU-GR closings.
AFTERNOON CLOSINGS: Applicable Course Coordinators will determine afternoon closings by 11:00 a.m., independent of FSU-GR closings. A phone number has been established at the Grand Rapids Instructional Site for students to call to confirm afternoon closings. Announcements regarding afternoon closings will also be posted on FerrisConnect (Pharmacy 4-1-1 P-3 discussion board and discussion boards of affected courses).
Any announcements made on radio, TV, internet, etc. regarding FSU school closings or class cancellations in Big Rapids are separate and do not pertain to the Pharmacy Practice Instructional sites.
