Inclement Weather Guidelines

In the event of inclement weather, the college may adjust campus opening/closing times or close the campus entirely. For inclement weather notices, students, faculty and staff may visit the college website (see "Announcements" on the home page), listen to the message on the college phone system (636-922-8000), or watch local TV stations and/or visit their websites.

The college will contact local media with inclement weather announcements as soon as possible but cannot guarantee what times they will appear on radio or television stations and their websites. The following media will be notified by 5:30 a.m. for day classes or by 5 p.m. for evening classes (if bad weather develops during the day):

  • KMOX Radio (1120 AM)
  • KWRE (730AM) – KFAV (99FM) Radio
  • KSDK-TV, Channel 5
  • KMOV-TV, Channel 4
  • KTVI-TV, Channel 2

Do not call the stations for information, but listen/watch during the scheduled inclement weather announcement periods. Students may also check the SCC Facebook page at for weather-related closings.

In addition, students, faculty and staff who sign up for the Emergency Alert System will be notified by cell phone text. 

In the case of evening classes held at middle schools and high schools in the area, the SCC classes will not meet if the schools themselves have announced they are closed.
