Inclement Weather

Delayed Opening:

Depending on the time of day, the delays can affect your schedule in different ways.


In-person classes may have been transitioned to an online format. Please check Blackboard and your Zane State College email for further instruction from your faculty. Remember, conditions may be different where you live. Students should determine the safety of travel for themselves and communicate with their faculty accordingly.


Essential personnel should report to campus. All other employees should contact their supervisors for additional details to perform work duties remotely until the time of the campus opening.


If the College closes or delays classes, communications will begin by 6 a.m. via:

Closing Announcements:

In general, inclement weather, such as snow, sleet, ice, or rain, will not warrant the cancellation of classes or the closing of Zane State College’s (ZSC) campuses. Under such conditions, each student and employee should make judgment pertaining to his/her safety in traveling to and from the College.

If ZSC closes before classes begin/offices open or the College has a delayed opening, factors including weather forecasts and the conditions of parking lots and roads aid in the decision-making process. For everyone’s safety, when there is a delayed opening, only "inclement weather” personnel should come to campus until the College is open.

When the College closes early, all staff, with the exception of inclement weather personnel, are expected to leave in accordance with the closing time.
