As we approach the winter season, now is the time to remind everyone of the policies and procedures followed should classes need to be canceled, or the campus need to close, due to a weather or other emergency.

All students are encouraged to sign up for the RCTC Emergency Alert, an emergency alert text-messaging system that enables RCTC to notify subscribers of any campus-related emergency, such as potential campus safety hazards or campus closures due to weather.

During questionable weather conditions, a number of factors will be considered in making the decision on whether to delay the start of classes or close the campus. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Are state highways open and snowplows operating?
  • Are local transit systems running?
  • Is wind, cold, or ice a factor?
  • Are power or heating systems affected?

During an emergency, an emergency alert email will be sent to all RCTC students and employees, and a phone call/text message will be sent to all subscribers of the RCTC Emergency Alert system. In addition, RCTC’s Facebook, Twitter, and website ?will have up-to-date information, the College’s main switchboard will have a recorded message with the status of any campus closing (507-285-7210), and the following media outlets will be notified:

  • Radio: KRCH/Laser 101.7; 102.5 (The Fox); KWEB; KROC AM/FM; Y105; KWWK, KLCX, and KDZZ
  • Television: KTTC-TV; FOX 47-TV and KAAL-TV

In the event of inclement weather, RCTC will make every effort to make an announcement by 6:00 am whether the campus will be closed or have a delayed start for the day. The decision to cancel?evening classes will be made by 3:00 pm.

Because weather and related road conditions are not the same in every area where students live, the decision as to whether it is safe to travel ultimately resides with each individual.

Please remember, the personal safety of the members of the campus community is RCTC’s number one priority in making any weather-related decision about campus operations. For the complete RCTC Weather/Emergency Policy, click here.

Faculty individually canceling classes for personal or medical leave will be posted here.
