When a decision is reached to open the college late, classes will resume on their normal schedules at the time of the opening (There is no longer a delay schedule with abbreviated class schedules).
Example scenarios when opening late:
- If we open at 10a.m. classes will resume on their normal schedules beginning at 10a.m.
- If you have a class that ends before 10a.m. that class is cancelled.
- If your class starts before 10a.m. and it extends past 10a.m. the class will be held beginning at 10a.m. until it’s normal ending time.
Early closings will be announced in the same manner as soon as possible when conditions warrant.
