Decisions concerning the closing or late opening of DSLCC due to inclement weather will be made by a college administrator in consultation with personnel who live in various parts of the region. The decision is generally made before 5:30 a.m. for day classes and 3:00 p.m. for night classes. Students may access this information through local radio and TV stations, the college website, the college switchboard, or an email to official VCCS student email addresses.
LATE OPENING. During a late opening, DSLCC classes will begin meeting as scheduled starting at the late opening start time. For example, if the announcement says that DSLCC opens at 10:00 AM, 8:30 AM – 9:45 AM classes will not meet. 10:00 AM and later starting classes will meet as scheduled. Students should always check with their instructors for proper guidelines for their particular courses, especially if the course meets for a longer period of time than what is shown in the example.
