Weather Closings

Your safety is important to us. If the decision to close or delay the college due to the weather is made, that announcement will be made as quickly as possible in the following places:

  • A SNAP Text Message to Students and Employees that have signed up to recieve SNAP alerts.
  • Many of the local media outlets will give information on weather closings and delays.
  • An announcement on weather closings or delays will be placed on the Big Sandy web site.
  • A message will be placed on our automatic phone message.

As conditions develop througout the day, the closing and delay messages will be updated.

When the college closes, buildings are closed to all except essential personnel with supervisor approval.
