News Update: UTSA operations proceed Sept. 12-13

(Sept. 12, 2008 -- 12:15 p.m.)--As of 11:45 a.m., Sept. 12, UTSA administrators determined that offices, classes and programs at the three UTSA campuses will operate as scheduled Friday, Sept. 12 and Saturday, Sept. 13.

Because the safety of the UTSA community is of top concern, UTSA officials will continue to monitor the status of Hurricane Ike. In the greater San Antonio area, 20 mph winds and rain showers are likely Saturday. Those traveling should use their own best judgment.

In the event of extreme, hazardous weather conditions that could endanger the UTSA community, messages will be sent via the Reverse 911 system (text, phone and e-mail) to those individuals affected; registration is required to receive messages. At the 1604 Campus, the Giant Voice outdoor mass notification system will be utilized.

To prepare for possible bad weather and arrival of high winds, UTSA staff members began Thursday to remove some outdoor trashcans, furniture, temporary signs and banners.

At any time, monitor these outlets for the latest information on the operational status of the university:

  • (210) 458-SNOW (7669)
  • UTSA home page
  • Local broadcast and print media

Call (210) 458-SNOW (7669) for current information on the status of classes, events and employee work schedules at the UTSA Tri-campuses. Up to 138 calls can be accepted at a time, but please be patient if you hear a busy signal.

The UTSA Office of University Communications will update the UTSA home page and UTSA Today with information on the university's status.

In the advent of extreme weather, UTSA provides all area broadcast and print media outlets with the latest information in a timely manner. The university initially communicates with both WOAI Television and WOAI Radio.
