Weather Closures

When there are inclement weather conditions, the College will act in accordance with the City of Boston and recommendations by the Governor regarding closing public offices and schools. During a College closure, emergency staffing will remain in place for the following departments: Campus Safety, Facilities, Dining and Residence Life.

The following announcement timelines will apply for College closure and class cancellation due to weather:


6:00 a.m. for day classes (classes that start between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.)
1:00 p.m. for evening classes (classes that start at 4:15 p.m. or later)
7:00 a.m. for Saturday morning classes (Saturday classes that start at 8:30 a.m. or later)
11:00 a.m. for Saturday afternoon classes (Saturday classes that start at 1:00 p.m. or later)


Communication about College closure is made through the Emergency Notification System and posted on the website, the MySaints portal and social media. Additionally, Emmanuel contacts the following media channels: WHDH-TV/Channel 7, CW56/Channel 56, WCVB/Channel 5, FOX25 and WBZ-TV/RADIO/Channel 4 about closures. Since there is no guarantee that local media announces cancellation information promptly or fully, the College recommends that individuals visit Emmanuel's website for the most accurate information.


All Emmanuel staff, faculty and students are required to sign up for the Emergency Notification System. Students, staff and faculty can update their accounts by logging into the MySaints portal and going to "My Accounts" and "Emergency Notification System." Internal Emmanuel e-mail addresses are automatically used in the system, but students, staff and faculty should also enter their cell phone number to receive a text and voicemail message. An alternate e-mail address, as well as additional phone numbers may be entered, allowing students to add family contact information.
