Inclement Weather/State of Emergency Policies

Inclement weather classroom policy reminder:

Please remember that if DCC announces a delay or closing because of inclement weather, it applies to all locations where classes are held. In the case of a delay, classes should meet if there is a minimum of 30 minutes of instructional time available after the opening of classes. For example, if classes were to begin at 10 a.m. because of inclement weather, those in a 9:00 a.m. -10:50 a.m. class would be expected to attend at 10 a.m.  (Nursing students in clinicals should follow the instructions of the clinical instructor.)

Additionally, in the case of inclement weather, students should make their own determination whether to attempt to travel to class based on the road conditions in their own area. Students will not be penalized for missing class under this circumstance, although they are responsible for the work missed and are expected to make it up in a reasonable time as determined by the instructor.
