Inclement Weather and School Closing Information

Parkville, Downtown Kansas City and Independence Campuses

When a decision to cancel classes is determined by Park University senior administrative staff, it will be announced as early as possible using the following guidelines:
     •  Day Classes -- Announced by 6 a.m.
     •  Evening Classes -- Announced by 4 p.m.

Kansas City area students, faculty and staff will receive notifications as follows:

Kansas City-Area Media Outlets




Other Outlets

Although you may have a favorite TV or radio station, the above list of media outlets and notification systems are the most reliable source of information on school closings. Check with your cable provider for specific TV channel listings.

IMPORTANT: Please pay careful attention to announcements to ensure that classes are cancelled at your specific campus -- Parkville, Downtown Kansas City or Independence. One campus center might be closed while others remain open. Also, Park’s Whiteman Air Force Base Campus Center in Knob Noster, Mo., could be listed as it resides within the Kansas City television market.

In addition, administrative offices may remain open even if classes are cancelled. Please listen and read announcement closings carefully to determine if employees should report to work. Contact your direct supervisor if you have questions.
