Decisions regarding delay or cancellation of day classes are generally announced by 6:00 a.m. Cancellation of evening classes is generally announced by 3:00 p.m. Decisions regarding delay or cancellation of classes are made and announced separately for each instructional site of MACC. All weather announcements will be sent out by hound alert (e2campus), posted on the MACC website, sent to radio and TV stations, and posted on the MACC Facebook page.
When it is publicly announced an MACC location is closed, the buildings will not be open. If it is announced that classes will begin late due to inclement weather, the College will not open doors until that time. Delayed starts allow more time for cleaning crews to clear lots and sidewalks. All students, faculty and staff should use their best judgment when traveling during inclement weather.
• Delayed starts will typically be scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Classes that start before 10:30 a.m. and meet only until
• Classes that start before 10:30 a.m. will be cancelled.
• Classes that start at 10:30 a.m. and after will be held.
If the College closes early, classes in session will conclude at the closing time regardless of when they begin (i.e., if the College is closing at 3 p.m., a 2:30 p.m. class will end at 3 p.m. regardless of the regularly scheduled ending time).
Virtual classes will follow the same delayed start or cancellation practice as regular ground classes.
Classes held at the Kirksville Area Technical Center, Macon Area Career & Technical Center or the Moberly Area Technical Center will be cancelled if the public school is closed.
Online classes will follow the regular due dates for the class. Students are encouraged to communicate with faculty if a campus closing prevents them from meeting a deadline.
Students in special programs (i.e., Allied Health and Law Enforcement) will be expected to follow the guidelines of the programs regarding extended class time or clinical meetings.
The information will be given to the following radio and television stations, depending on the location of the campus closing. Students should also check myMACC for class specific cancellations due to faculty travel. To check for specific class cancellations, go to my.MACC.edu.
