Delays, Class Cancellations, and College Closure

The following are possible actions that Sage could take in case of inclement weather or other emergency:

  • College Opening is Delayed
    • Staff and administrators are expected to report at the delayed opening hour indicated. 
    • Classes scheduled to begin prior to the delayed opening hour will not be held.
    • Students and faculty are expected to meet for classes held at or after the hour of campus opening.
  • Classes Canceled 
    • An announcement that classes have been canceled means that students and faculty do not attend classes, but administrative offices are open, and staff and administrators are expected to report to work at the usual time. The cancellation of day classes does not automatically mean that evening or weekend classes and events or activities are also canceled.  When this is the case, every effort will be made to post a separate message before 3 p.m.; however, the rapid change in a situation may require a later cancellation time. Check TV and radio stations or for updates.
    • In the case of a weather closing, classes will have the option of going remote at the instructor’s discretion.
  • Campus Closed 
    • All classes are canceled and offices are closed. 
    • Personnel designated as essential are expected to report for their usual shift and residence dining services will be provided.
  • Note: The College will only be closed in extreme circumstances. These may require closing after classes have begun for the day. Students, faculty, staff, and administrators will be notified of the closing time via Send Word Now and
