Inclement Weather

We've made it easier on the  PCC web site to view announcements regarding weather related issues. All announcements will be posted on homepage as an large alert banner image.  The banner color is coded for 3 primary areas of alerts.  They are:


  • Red - College closed due to severe weather.  This may also be used to alert for severe weather in the vicinity of the college campuses.
  • Yellow - College delayed due to weather.
  • Green -  College is on regular schedule or closed due to holiday or administrative day.

Announcements regarding the cancellation of classes due to inclement weather will be made as soon as possible in order to eliminate the need of telephoning or the unnecessary start of travel. Attempts to publicize decisions affecting day classes will be made by 6:00 a.m. at the latest, and evening class cancellations will be publicized by 4:00 p.m. on the affected days. Class cancellations will be publicized on major radio stations serving the following counties: Person, Caswell, Granville, Alamance, Durham, and Orange, and Halifax and Pittsylvania counties in Virginia. The following television stations will carry notices of class cancellations:

Once cancellations have been aired on any station(s), the plan will be maintained for that day and/or evening. In addition, the message will be available on the automated attendant message at 599-1181 and 694-5707. The College will also send cancellations by e-mail to employees and students. If no cancellation announcement is disseminated, classes will be held as scheduled.
