Each class should develop a telephone chain so that faculty can communicate with students when a class has to be canceled because of emergencies or bad weather.
The Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research uses the services of radio station KYW 1060 AM to alert you as to whether or not classes will be held. If classes have been canceled, the School’s emergency weather closing number – 415 in Montgomery County – will be read on the radio. Community members outside of KYW’s range may call the College’s snow closing hotline for information at (610) 526-7310 or the main number of the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research at (610) 520-2600. The information on the snow closing hotline is updated hourly. Please note that the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research may close even when the College remains open.
