What about snow days?
There have been several snow days in which local schools, including the College campus, were closed. We were open as usual. Since instructors are local, at least one of us will be available and able to run the course on any given day. Regardless of radio announcements relating to local business and school closures, assume we're open.
Most students are local, or at least staying in local accommodation, and travel is not an issue. Where a student is commuting a longer distance and unable to make it in, we'll try to make arrangements to make up the material, including any hands-on labs missed. As always, each student needs to make the decision with regard to their own safety in whether or not to venture out on the roads.
