When the roads and highways are too hazardous for students to travel, the college will make the decision to cancel or delay the start time for classes. In extreme cases, the Governor will initiate a state-of-emergency and ban all traffic on state highways and interstates.
Announcements will be displayed on the Johnson College website home page. Information is placed on the site as soon as the decision to cancel or delay is made by the College administration. Additionally, students participation with the College’s emergency notification system will be emailed/texted about closings or delays as soon as a decision is made.
Television stations WNEP-TV Channel 16, WYOU-TV Channel 22, and WBRE-TV Channel 28, will also be called immediately after the decision is made to delay or cancel classes and these stations will then make the announcement. In addition, local radio stations and stations in the southern New York Tier are called to announce cancellations.
If you believe classes might be on a delayed start or canceled, please view the website or tune into the television and/or radio stations.
Information on compressed schedules/early dismissals for the semester will be placed on the website shortly.
