Weather-Related Cancellation/Delay/Closing Notification



LMU offices generally will remain open during periods of inclement weather, even though classes may be canceled. Staff members should refer to the “Response to Inclement Weather Policy” in the Faculty-Staff Policy Manual for additional information.

The main sources of information regarding cancellation/delay of classes due to weather-related situations are the LMU Website, Pathway and the telephone weather information lines provided below.  Also, when possible, radio and television stations (listed below) will be contacted to announce cancellations/delays. Every effort will be made to have morning or daytime cancellation/delay notices posted by 6 a.m. and notices for evening classes (those beginning at 6 p.m. or later) posted by 4:30 p.m.(Please note that for weather emergencies such as tornado warnings or closings due to disaster or lockdown situations, the E2campus emergency alert system is used; information about the E2campus emergency alert system may be found at http://www.lmunet.edu/curstudents/emergency/index.shtml.)

NOTE:  Extended learning sites utilizing local school facilities are closed when those facilities close due to weather conditions.

When classes are delayed, the snow schedule provided below will be followed.

For weather-related information, please dial 1.866.325.8570.  You will hear the LMU greeting message and then be given the option to “Press 6” for weather-related messages.  After pressing  6, you may select one of the following options for site-specific weather-related information:
  • 1- Duncan School of Law
  • 2- Knoxville area sites (Cedar Bluff, Blount, Physicians Regional Medical Center (formerly St. Mary's))
  • 3- Corbin
  • 5-Graduate Education
  • 6- Harrogate Campus

If the Harrogate campus or an extended learning site is closed, an announcement will be made in the same way, i.e., LMU Website, Pathway and site-specific weather-related information line.  Also, when possible, radio and television stations (listed below) will be contacted to announce cancellations/delays/closings.

When classes are delayed for one or two hours at the Harrogate campus or the Corbin, Cedar Bluff, Blount County, or Physicians Regional Medical Center (formerly St. Mary’s) extended learning sites, the following schedule will be followed:
