Campus Safety Update

On Friday, April 13, the Augustana Department of Campus Safety sent the following notice:

On Saturday, snow removal on campus may be a challenge.  It is likely parking lots and sidewalks will not be cleared until starting on Sunday, April 15th.

The City of Sioux Falls has also announced preparation for the storm to include:

  • Plows will only clear emergency snow routes until the snow stops
  • Public transportation will only operate on emergency snow routes
  • The Midco Aquatic Center and all libraries will be closed.
  • They have not issued a no travel advisory, YET.

If you normally park on a city street, plan ahead and move your car to off-street parking before the snow starts. Augustana will make the KO Stadium parking lot off of Lake Avenue available on Friday for off-street parking. Call Campus Safety for a ride back to your residence hall, 605.274.4014.

We will also send out a notice via the Emergency Notification  System when/if the city announces a snow alert.
