Unscheduled Closings/Delays

In the event of unscheduled closings or delays, the College will adhere to the following policies.


Day & Evening Classes

Classes will be canceled by the president in collaboration with the director of safety and emergency

Students are asked to check the following avenues to find out about closing or changes in schedules:

Announcements will be made, if possible, by 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. for the day and evening classes respectively.

Note: In the case of a delayed opening, normal class schedules are not altered. Students should report to the class that would normally be in session at the time of opening. (Example: If you have an 8 - 11 a.m. class and the College opens at 10 a.m., your class will meet from 10 - 11 a.m.)

Individuals, especially those commuting from other counties or remote locations, should exercise personal judgment concerning road conditions regardless of College announcement.

If a closing decision is made while students, faculty and staff ARE ON CAMPUS, information will be shared through "urgent" email and direct contact and, if appropriate, made available on voice mail areas, the RCC website, RCCAlert, and on designated TV stations.


Extracurricular Activities/Events

All extracurricular activities or other scheduled events normally will be canceled when it is necessary to cancel classes due to unscheduled College closings. The person who is in charge of the activity/event will be responsible for rescheduling the activity/event, if necessary.


Missed or Canceled Classes

Scheduled classes which are missed or not held for any reason, including inclement weather, will be rescheduled or the instruction will be made up by some other alternative. Alternatives may include extra class sessions, extended class sessions, individual conferences, or other options approved by the appropriate dean.
