Winter Weather Schedule

  1. If Guilford County Schools are closed, we cancel Staff Education classes and instruct staff to report to their departments to determine needs and provide assistance.
  2. If Guilford County Schools are closed AND General Orientation was held on Monday, then Staff Education will continue with classes necessary for orienting new employees, ex. Cone HealthLink, Clinical or Nursing Orientation, etc. (These staff would not be able to help in their departments because they haven't been properly oriented.)
  3. If Guilford County Schools are delayed, then Staff Education classes will run as scheduled.
