Contingency Measures Due to Severe Weather
Posted: Sep 7, 2016
When weather conditions are severe ( heavy rainfall, flooding, high winds, blizzard conditions, heavy snow, etc. ) or when a warning has been issued by the Japan Meteorological Agency ( JMA ) and a determination has been made by the University that current conditions pose a danger to the safety of students and employees, the University will enact contingency measures such as the cancellation of classes, postponement of examinations, etc. Directives enacting such contingency measures shall apply to all courses and examinations taking place on the TAKANODAI campus.
Based on prevalent weather conditions such as during a typhoon, heavy snow, etc. where forecasts with reasonable accuracy can be made, and the University deems that conditions pose a danger to the safety of students and employees, the University will announce on its website, http://www.musabi.ac.jp/, any cancellation of classes, postponement of examinations, etc. In such cases, a decision will be based on the official warning for the Tama Hokubu area issued by JMA. ( Please check :http://www.jma.go.jp/en/warn/319_table.html )
If any official warning for Tama Hokubu is issued at 6 am, all classes and activities in the morning ( until 12 pm ) will be cancelled, and if any official warning is issued at 9 am, all classes and activities for the entire day will be cancelled.
