Inclement Weather Guidelines

In general, the College will stay open as long as it is safe to do so. In the event of inclement weather, however, the College will notify radio and television stations if classes must be canceled or delayed. A message will be on our phone system and can be accessed at any time by calling (731) 424-3520 or 1-800-355-5722. Closing information will also be posted on the College Website, and sent out through JSCC Text Alert. When possible, notices will be posted by 6:00 a.m. for day classes and 3:00 p.m. for night classes. Closings and delays always apply to all College locations.

In the event of inclement weather, one of the following decisions will be made:

Day Classes

  1. Open campus on regular schedule.
  2. Open campus on delayed schedule - classes meeting between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. will start precisely 1 hour late.
    • Classes beginning at 8:00 a.m. will be canceled.
    • All other classes will meet on regular schedule.
    • Employees should report to work as soon as possible, but no later than 9:00 a.m.
  3. Closed
    • Classes cancelled.
    • Faculty and Staff do not report to work.

Night Classes

Classes will meet on regular schedule or be cancelled.
