From 1 p.m. (MT) Monday, August 27, to 1 a.m. Tuesday, August 28, BYU-Idaho will experience a campus-wide power outage that will affect all BYU-Idaho systems — including phones, university email, course access, website, and any other service that requires a university login.
In fact, all campus personnel have been asked to leave campus by 12 p.m. (noon) on Monday, August 27. So, Home Office employees and other services, such as the BYU-Idaho Support Center, will be unavailable until the next day.
Please make reasonable accommodations for your students in turning in assignments. Also, please remind your students, via course announcement and/or email, of the upcoming power outage and encourage them to plan their coursework accordingly.
Also note that BYU-Idaho’s IT plans to post a reminder as a global announcement in the LMS sometime next week. We hope the combination of all the mentioned messaging efforts help prepare you and your students for the power outage. Thanks for your coordination!
