Guidelines for College Closings, Delayed Starts, Emergencies

Yakima Valley College has procedures for announcing closings and delays – caused by weather conditions and other circumstances – and for communicating with students, faculty and staff during emergencies. The procedures may be implemented at any time.

Decisions on closings and delayed starts for weather conditions are made by the college administration as early as possible, typically by 6 a.m.

Always be safe; make sound decisions about traveling in poor weather conditions.

What if it snows? The college seeks to stay open to fulfill its mission whenever possible — so, most likely, it will be classes as usual for the college — but individuals should protect their own health and safety.

奇幻城线上娱乐官网For closings, announcements apply to campuses and all learning center sites, unless otherwise noted in the message. Announcements that indicate “the college is closed” or “classes are cancelled” mean that all classes, activities, office functions, special events and other operations are canceled for the period of closure.

奇幻城线上娱乐官网Students, faculty and staff are not expected to come to the college in the event of a closure. Exceptions include employees who have specific instructions from a supervisor to do so in order to provide crucial services (such as snow removal, security, food service, etc.)

The college normally opens at 8 am. A “delayed start” means that all classes, office operations, and other activities that normally start and stop before the delayed start time are canceled. Students and staff resume their normal schedule at the start time, missing whatever activities had been planned prior to the delayed start.

For example, if it is announced that the college is on a two-hour delay, staff and students should report beginning at 10 am and follow their normal schedule from 10 am through the remainder of the day. For example, 9:30 am classes resume at 10 am or when the college opens.

Employee questions may be raised with the Human Resources Office奇幻城线上娱乐官网. Students are encouraged to work with your instructors if you need to make other arrangements in an emergency.

Winter Weather Advisory

In the event that YVC cancels classes due to weather, students and employees can:

Listen to local media outlets including television and radio stations in Yakima and Tri-Cities for information on college closures. Be sure to listen for clarification on whether the closure is for Yakima or Grandview campuses if our Learning Centers in Sunnyside, Toppenish, or Ellensburg are included, and whether the closure involves day or evening classes. Evening students, please check the website in the late afternoon, as the status of the closure may change. Evening students, please check the website in the late afternoon, as the status of the closure may change.

The college operates independently from K-12 schools, YVC winter advisory information will be available online at .

Receive text messages through YVC’s notification system, RAVE. You will automatically receive an email for emergency or weather closures, however you can manage your account and add your cell number to also receive a text. Update your communication .

Unless otherwise notified, the college will resume regular business hours the following day. More information may be found on YVC Emergency Preparedness Plan.
