Winter Weather Policy

It is Olney Central College’s policy to remain open unless the weather makes it too hazardous to do so. When the safety of students and staff is threatened due to inclement weather or other emergencies, OCC will be closed or classes canceled or delayed.

Administration will attempt to notify media outlets prior to the 6:00 a.m. news on the day of the closing.

Don’t assume that if the elementary and high schools close, OCC will be closed as well. If no announcement is made, classes will meet as usual.

Closure of day classes does not necessarily mean that evening classes will be canceled. Announcements regarding evening classes will be made prior to 4:00 p.m., if at all possible.

The following radio and television stations will be notified of any cancellations or delays:

• WVLN-AM and WSEI-FM in Olney

• WIKK in Newton

• WAKO in Lawrenceville

• WFIW-AM and -FM in Fairfield

• WNOI-FM in Flora

• WSJD in Mt. Carmel

• WCRC in Effingham

• WVJC in Mt. Carmel

• WTWO and WTHI in Terre Haute, Ind.

• WFIE in Evansville, Ind.
