A message from Dean Cribb

Dear Cummings Community,

We are estimating that the Grafton campus received 13 inches of snow and the early morning reports suggests that many of the secondary roads have not yet been plowed.
In light of that information we are extending the delayed opening on the Grafton campus, and now the Grafton Campus will open at 11:00 am on Monday, March 4, 2019.  Visit our website,, or call the Cummings School Information Line (508-839-6124) for updated information.
In the Foster Hospital for Small Animals and the Hospital for Large Animals on the Grafton campus, first shift Essential Personnel should report as usual.  Third shift personnel are asked to remain in the hospitals until 8:00 AM, when the storm is expected to end.
Clinical, fourth year students, if essential, should report at the usual time.  If unsure about your status, consult with your rotation director. 
Tufts Veterinary Field Service will be opening at 10:00  AM as announced last night.  Please direct any questions to Dr. White, 860-974-2780.
Tufts at Tech Community Clinic located at Worcester Technical High School is closed today (Monday March 4, 2019).  Please contact Dr. Wolfus ( ) by email for additional information.
Tufts VETS hospital in Walpole, MA, will be open for regular operations on Monday March 4, 2019.
Public Safety and Parking:
Campus facilities and public safety officers will work to clear snow, shovel paths and open parking lots.  Please help us by following these parking guidelines.  Essential personnel, required to come in early Monday morning, should park their cars in front of campus police (Building 15).  It is imperative we keep vehicles in a centralized location to help facilities and others remove snow. If you need a ride across campus, please call campus police at 508-887-4900.
