Sign Up for RCC Alerts
In the event of an emergency or inclement weather, a decision regarding a closing or late opening will be made by 6:00 a.m. For evening classes, an announcement will be made by 3:00 p.m. In the absence of any announcement, classes will be held.
Closings: The College may close a campus or site if weather prohibits safe operations. If a campus or site is closed, the facility is not open to RCC personnel or the public; however, this action does not necessarily mean that classes are canceled or all services are unavailable. Online (On-Your-Time/asynchronous) classes will continue as scheduled as these classes are not time-specific.
Students should check the course’s Canvas site for instructions and details from the course instructor. When local school jurisdictions close a school where the college operates an off-campus site, the RCC operations at that site are canceled regardless of whether the college or a campus is closed.
Delayed: The College may delay opening in the event of inclement weather at a campus or site. Students should arrive at the appointed hour. If, for example, the College opens at 10 a.m., and the student had a class that began at 9:30 a.m., the class will meet from 10 a.m. until the usual ending time.
Closing Early (During Operating Hours): If after the College has opened, weather conditions deteriorate in the area, RCC will close early.
Safety Notice: If classes are held, each individual must assess conditions at the point from which that person is traveling, since conditions can vary greatly throughout the service region. No one is expected to place attendance above personal safety. However, if a student does miss a class, it will be the student’s responsibility to contact the professor as soon as possible to make arrangements for completing class work.
