How to Receive Emergency Information from LCC

In the event that LCC closes due to inclement weather or other emergency, we get the word out via the LCC website, social media, Canvas, email, text messages, and regional media including Portland television stations. LCC also uses an on-campus emergency notification system that utilizes the large digital clock displays in every classroom.

To learn more, please refer to the LCC Emergency Handbook, which contains LCC’s Crisis Communication Procedure and process for closing campus (in inclement weather, we make initial notifications about canceling day classes by 6 am and evening classes by 2 pm).

When the college is closed, it means there are no classes, events or other activities. Students should not come to campus.

Use the LCC Directory to find contact information for your instructors or other college personnel if needed.

Individuals who work on campus should watch their email during a closure for details. When in doubt about whether or not to report to work, please contact your supervisor.

If classes are canceled but offices are open, some campus events and activities may be held depending on conditions. To find out about specific events, check the LCC website and/or our Facebook and Twitter sites for exceptions to the closure.

Refer to the LCC Athletics website for information about athletic events.

For other questions about LCC, please check out the Student Frequently Asked Questions page on our website.

As always, please put safety first when making any decisions about traveling in inclement weather, or when other hazardous conditions are present!
