Cancellation of Classes Due to Winter Weather Conditions
As we enter snow season, we want to inform you about possible decisions to cancel classes due to snow or related weather conditions. As a general practice, we cancel classes only under the most extreme circumstances. Therefore, please expect that classes will be held as scheduled and prepare accordingly, such as planning for additional travel time.
On a rare occasion, classes may be canceled. You may learn if classes have been canceled due to weather on student email, the CLC web site, or via the media sources listed below. Students will also receive emergency announcements from CLC’s BlackBoard Star Alert System at the phone number and email address that was provided when registering for classes. To revise or update your contact information you must sign up to access your account through the CLC BlackBoard Portal
After signing up you will be able to choose how you want
to receive CLC emergency announcements. Options include your home phone, cell phone by voice or text, or at your home email address.

Some classes meet in local school district buildings. If a school district cancels schools, CLC classes, both day and
evening, located at this school will be canceled. Contact the local school district to determine if the district has canceled
classes. Students in ITV classes may receive special instructions.
If day classes are canceled, the decision will be communicated no later than 6:00 a.m.
Whenever possible, if evening classes are canceled, the decision will communicated no later than 2:00 p.m. to prevent
students from traveling in unsafe conditions during evening hours.
If classes are not canceled when there is snow or difficult driving conditions, each student must decide whether to
attend class, based on her/his personal situation. However, if classes are held and a student decides not to attend,
absences will be handled according to the instructor’s syllabus.
