Many of these stations also have information posted on their website.

Other methods of communication include:

  1. Closures will be on the College Weather Information Line at 402.552.6110.
  2. Closures will also be posted on the Clarkson College website and any social media utilized by the College.
  3. An e2Campus notification will be sent to everyone who has registered to receive messages.

Students who are unable to attend classes because of bad weather when the College is not closed should notify their instructor. If assigned to a clinical rotation, students should also notify the personnel at the clinical site. If the faculty member is not present at the clinical site during bad weather but the students were able to get there, they should stay until College personnel contact them with instructions. Please check with your clinical faculty for other specific contact instructions under these scenarios.
