While every effort is made to keep campus open, on occasion it may be necessary to delay opening or close because of inclement weather. The most updated information regarding any closures can be found on area television and radio stations, the switchboard telephone line (276-638-8777), our website homepage, and it is sent to registered PHCC Alert users.
Inclement Weather/Delayed Class Schedule
If PHCC experiences a delay, classes will begin operating on their normal schedules once the campus opens - regardless of the time that is. For example, if classes begin at 10:00 a.m. because of a 2-hour delay, classes scheduled from 10:00 a.m. forward take place at their regularly scheduled time. Any classes that were scheduled before 10:00 a.m. would not meet that day. Your instructors provide information regarding assignments during any missed class time.
If the opening time is during your normally scheduled class then the class meets for whatever duration exists after the school opens. For example, you have a class that begins at 9:30 a.m. and finishes at 10:45 a.m. If there is a 2-hour delay in opening the college, you should attend your class beginning at 10:00 a.m., which provides you 45 minutes of instruction. The general rule is for classes that have 30 or more minutes remaining in their scheduled time, you should attend that class when the college opens. Questions regarding specific class should be directed to the instructor.
Classes at the Patrick County site follow the same inclement weather schedule as the main PHCC campus in Martinsville, unless otherwise announced.
