Inclement Weather or Emergency Closing


On occasion of inclement weather or emergency closing, announcements will be made by the Director of Marketing and Community Relations concerning the activities of the College and day and evening classes at the Rutherford Campus, the Polk Center and any other locations. This information will be posted as soon as possible on the college website and announced on the College Radio Station (WNCW 88.7). Local and area radio and television stations will also be requested to carry the announcements and the County Communications Center will be notified.


If it is announced that the college is closed for either inclement weather or any other type of emergency which may arise, designated essential personnel (maintenance and campus assistance) will report unless directed otherwise. Other essential personnel as designated by the President or appropriate Vice President will report as directed.


For all full-time personnel not considered essential—if the college is closed, time missed will be considered administrative leave and/or annual leave as directed and will not be made up. If classes are cancelled but the administrative offices are open, the staff time missed must be made up or counted as annual, compensatory or bonus leave. If the college opening is delayed for any reason, only time missed after the announced reopening will need to be made up or counted as leave. Time missed must be counted as annual, compensatory or bonus leave.
