No delayed opening; college open Thursday, Jan. 16

No delayed opening; college open Thursday, Jan. 16. Please use your own best judgment to get to campus safely.

We urge all students and employees to err on the side of protecting their own health and safety. Parking lots and side walks throughout campus may be icy. The college asks students and employees to take extra precautions while walking throughout campus:

  • Allow ample time to walk from your car to class. In slippery conditions, it is imperative
    that you take care to slow down.
  • When walking on an icy or snow-covered walkway, take short steps and walk at a slower pace so you can react quickly to a change in traction.
  • Bending your knees a little and taking slower steps can greatly reduce your chances of falling.

Students, work with your instructors if you need to make other arrangements. College employees, please use your own best judgment to get to campus safely and work with your supervisor to make other arrangements as necessary.

Take care of yourself and be safe!

What if It Snows?

In inclement weather, Edmonds Community College typically makes decisions regarding emergency closures or class cancellations by 5 a.m. for day classes and 3 p.m. for evening classes (or as early as circumstances allow). Then we start getting the word out.

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. Take care of yourself and be safe!

Students, work with your instructors if you need to make other arrangements in an emergency.
