Inclement Weather

National Park College will address inclement weather situations consistent with the Governor’s Policy Directive and the NPC Board policy. The general policy is that NPC does not close due to inclement weather if at all avoidable. However, the obligation to provide services to the citizens of the area must be balanced with the risk of danger to students and employees. Therefore, the following guidelines are established to govern operations during inclement weather and to address and protect the needs of the College’s students.

The President or the Vice President for Academic Affairs will determine when the inclement weather policy is implemented based on area weather conditions. Local media will be used to notify students and employees of policy implementation. The state policy provisions regarding late arrival and leave time will apply to NPC employees.

In the event of early morning severe inclement weather conditions in the National Park College area, the President or Vice President for Academic Affairs will determine whether to place the inclement weather policy in effect and will publicly announce its implementation between 6:00 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., if possible. The decision to implement the inclement weather policy for evening classes will be made by mid-afternoon, and announced between 3:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., if possible. Announcements affecting Saturday classes will be made between 7:00 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. when possible.
