Emergency Campus Notifications

Get information about a weather delay or Olympia campus closure with the Omnilert service.

Sign up to receive free notifications of delays, closures or other emergencies via text message or email. (Text or data charges from your carrier may apply.)

We also announce emergencies on local TV and radio stations, the college website, and on the recorded information number: (360) 867-6000.

The Tacoma Campus is not covered by Omnilert. It follows the Tacoma school district’s closure schedule for snow emergencies. However, if schools start late, The Tacoma Program will still start on time.

In the Event of a Closure

The Suspended Operations and Closure Policy provides guidelines for suspended operations or closure authority when any event threatens to, or actually requires suspended operations or closure, or alteration of the schedule of The Evergreen State College.

Human Resource Services provides a page with details about leave and pay during suspended operations for all categories of college employees.
