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.


Important notice to students, employees, and the community:

Due to ongoing fire and safety concerns of the National Fire Protection Association, Edmonds Community College prohibits the use, possession, or storage of "hoverboard" style transport devices on campus property. This includes but is not limited to student housing, classrooms, meeting space, walkways, hallways, and open courtyards.
