Be Prepared for Winter Weather!

CBS students and auditors are reminded that it is your responsibility to check each week for any cancellation notifications that might be in effect for your class. These notices appear on the official records site for St. Thomas Seminary known as "STSRegistrar."

Test yourself today, to be sure you can access notifications before you need to do so on some snowy day. Your CBS student ID is the password you'll need to log in.* Here are several ways to link to the STSRegistrar site you need:
Students who do not have access to the internet must either 1) during office hours, contact the OEEC office  (860-242-5573, ext. 2670), or 2) outside office hours, make arrangements with a fellow-student to get the information by email or telephone. OEEC office hours are M-F 8:30-4:30.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: KEEP YOURSELF SAFE! Cancellations will be made based on the locations of classes and the teachers. If conditions differ at your location, use your judgment and err on the side of safety. Later on you can speak to your teacher directly to let them know what happened.

*Login instructions are included with the OEEC website links, as above. Or click on this link. Jennifer McClintock and Kelsey Meczywor can assist you, if you are having trouble logging in (860-242-5573).

Weather Notifications - You Know the Drill!

But here it is again, with this week's timing of notifications...

In light of... well, you know... students in Wednesday classes are reminded to check the online notification system for class cancellations on a class-by-class basis. Definitive notifications for morning classes will appear by 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday. Evening class information should be available by 3:00 p.m. at latest.

Here is the link to "Student Matters" page of our website:

If you can't access the internet, contact a fellow-student or your teacher for information. (If St. Thomas Seminary is closed, you won't be able to get in touch with us at the OEEC by phone.)

Remember, conditions at the class location may differ from your own, so check the notification each week before you attend class.

Use your best judgment. If road conditions are bad where you are, do not attempt to come to class--even if your class is not cancelled.

CBS Classes March 13-14

On Tuesday, March 13, 2018 ALL CBS classes are cancelled for the day.

We will post re: Wednesday classes as soon as reliable information is available regarding weather and road conditions.

But please use common sense and do not be distressed if for any reason we are unable to post notifications (i.e., if power fails). In that case, please check to see whether schools are closed in the town where your class is located. In that case morning classes in those towns will not meet. Evening classes might be held, but in all cases your safety is our number one priority. Do not travel if conditions are in any way unsafe.

If we are blessed to hold classes on Wednesday:
Wednesday Lesson 3.2 Make-Up Plans
CBS 400 in Manchester (morning class) will meet from 9:30-12:30 on Wednesday, March 14.
CBS 100 in Hamden will determine make-up plans when classes meet this Wednesday, March 14.
CBS 400 in Waterbury will determine make-up plans when classes meet this Wednesday, March 14.
CBS 400 in Hamden will have a "double" lecture on Wednesday, March 14, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Stay safe, warm and snug, and help your neighbors as you are able.
