The announcements will also be posted on the CUNY web site at www.cuny.edu, will be made available through 311, and be included as a recorded message on Baruch College's switchboard at 646-312-1000.

If classes are canceled, all staff, except those designated as essential to provide emergency coverage, are released without charge to leave balances.

The Security Office (646) 660-6000 is open 24 hours a day; the College switchboard (646-312-1000) will also be staffed for emergency coverage.

When changing conditions require early closing during the workday, Human Resources will notify each office directly by telephone or e-mail, and the radio stations will alert students and faculty members about canceled evening classes.
