Winter Storm Alert
Posted on Friday, February 13, 2015:
For nearly 45 years and over one million nautical miles, SEA has thoughtfully and continuously honed its safety policies and procedures to minimize risk. We operate under a philosophy of prevention but prepare for and are capable of a broad spectrum of response.
This philosophy extends to both the on-shore and at-sea components of our programs, so we are busy preparing for what an upcoming winter storm is expected to bring to the Cape & Islands this weekend. Specific information regarding our preparation is listed below.
- Students enrolled in SEA Semester class S-258 are currently provisioning with food, water, and recommended emergency supplies.
- The Head Resident and Student Services staff members are standing by ready to assist should additional accommodations become necessary.
- The SEA campus in Woods Hole, MA will be closed over the weekend as well as on Monday, February 16 for Presidents' Day. We will monitor road conditions and facilities services in order to determine when to resume normal business operations.
- The campus servers may be preemptively shut down sometime on Sunday, which would result in a loss of WiFi and landline service for students on campus.
We will be posting all updates to this blog as we have them.
