Weather announcement: As you may know, there is the possibility of some pretty serious weather coming our way. In the event of a cancellation, please refer to our general weather policy, which is included in our Class Times link and is also below:

"In the event of inclement weather, please observe the following:
  • For weekday classes, we will follow Concordia's lead, i.e., if they cancel, we will also cancel. In this situation, following the local school closings on the internet/radio/T.V. will keep you informed.
  • For all other classes, we will post any cancellations at least an hour before class time. In this situation, please check the blog approximately an hour before class starts."
Occasionally, there will be a situation where we may not follow Concordia's lead.  For example, Concordia may have school, but evening weather may cause us to cancel.  On the opposite end of the spectrum, it is possible that Concordia would cancel school, yet we might still be able to have class if the roads and parking lot are plowed at a reasonable time.  For reasons such as these, please check the blog for updates.  As stated above, we will post any changes approximately an hour before class starts (or earlier).
