Severe Weather

CCS’s policy is to keep the school open during periods of inclement weather, if at all possible. We realize there are times when the College may remain open and you feel it is unsafe for you to attempt to come in. If this occurs, please call and leave a message for your supervisor as soon as possible. Administrative staff will be required to take Paid Time Off (PTO) for days they are unable to come in. Faculty should make every attempt to reschedule any classes that are cancelled due to bad weather. If a class is unable to be rescheduled, it is up to the faculty member to ensure that any missing coursework is covered.

In the event it is necessary to close due to severe weather conditions or any other emergency, the following procedures for notification are followed:

  • The decision to close or cancel Day Classes will be made by 6:00 a.m. and to cancel Evening Classes will be made by 2:00 p.m.
  • Closings and class cancellations will be announced through Campus Emergency Alert Program via e-mail or text alerts.
  • Updates can be found on CCS’s website (www.collegeforcreativestudies.edu), CCS social channels and to local radio/TV stations.
