For students: 
We know our region has many micro-climates and conditions can vary dramatically. If you are unable to get to your campus or will be late because of inclement weather conditions, please contact your instructors. If you have dependants affected by school or day care closures and alternative arrangements cannot be made, please communicate with your instructors. We encourage you to use your discretion and work with your instructors to make alternate arrangements.
