In Case of Inclement Weather

All faculty, staff and students should be prepared for remote learning in the event of inclement weather. The SCC district covers a wide geographical area and weather conditions differ in certain areas. A decision as to whether or not classes will move to remote learning will be made as early as possible, usually by 6:00am. An announcement will be made through Saints Alert and official news media. KFVS-12, WPSD-6, and WSIL-3 are the official news media that will be sharing our remote learning announcement.

Unless otherwise specified, a remote learning day pertains to all Shawnee Community College classes (on-campus day, on-campus evening, and all off-campus extension centers). The absence of such an announcement means that classes will be in session as scheduled. SCC believes that our student body is mature enough to make wise decisions as to their ability to drive safely from their local community to campus.
