Winter Storm Update - December 7, 2018 – 10:33 a.m.

The National Weather Service has reported that a developing winter storm is expected to spread precipitation across central North Carolina beginning on Saturday with accumulating snow, sleet, and freezing rain on Sunday. While the full impact of this storm is unknown at this time, a Winter Storm Watch has been issued.  In preparation for the likelihood of inclement weather, please review the following information:

Physical Plant Operations / Snow Removal Pathways

Physical Plant staff and additional resources will be on campus throughout the weekend overseeing snow removal and attending to facility emergencies. (NOTE: All walkways lead from the FAC parking lot where College faculty, staff, and students commuting to campus must park beginning at 8:00 am on Saturday, December 8, until further notice from Public Safety.)  Employees who work on front campus (e.g., Sisters, Lehman, Main Hall) should enter buildings from the rear entrances facing interior campus along cleared pathways. A pathway will be cleared from Babcock residence hall across Church Street to access Gramley Library.

To review a map of pathways to be cleared, please see the WEATHER UPDATE email circulated to the College community at 10 am on Friday, December 7.  If you have an emergency request for the Physical Plant staff or need assistance identifying cleared pathways around campus, please call Public Safety (336-917-5555).

Public Safety

For assistance from Public Safety any time, call (336) 917-5555. Public Safety will be fully staffed and available 24/7. If conditions are extremely hazardous, Public Safety will not operate the golf cart for escorts.  

Power Outage

In the event Salem loses power to all or parts of campus, please be aware of the following:

  1. Contact Public Safety via cell numbers: 336-345-4235 OR 336-399-3126.
  2. The card access system may be inoperable.  If this were to occur, individuals who need assistance with facility access should contact Public Safety.
  3. Emergency lights will be operable.


In the event it becomes necessary to notify the Salem community of any weather-related emergencies or cancellations, notice will be provided as early as possible via text and voice message (for those registered to receive Salem text/voice message alerts), e-mail, the Salem College website (https://www.salem.edu/weather), and the WXII website and news channel.
