The following actions may occur:

Classes canceled
This action is reserved for hazardous conditions that continue to develop during the morning, showing no signs of stopping.

The cancellation of day classes does not imply the cancellation of evening classes. These are two separate actions. Class & Event Cancellations

Snow schedule
The College may delay opening on snowy days. An opening time will be announced. Classes scheduled before the delayed opening time are canceled. This announcement will be posted on the Web site. The normal class schedule will be maintained after the starting time. This course of action will be taken after a storm that makes early morning driving conditions hazardous, but when there is an indication that road crews will have conditions under control by mid-morning.

Hold classes as normal
When hazardous driving conditions affect only part of our service area, the College usually remains open. If there is no alert on the home page, classes are operating on a normal schedule. Check back for updates if conditions worsen.
