As a winter storm moves into our region, college leadership is closely monitoring the situation. The safety of our students and employees is our top priority. Therefore, the college will decide by 5 a.m. on Tuesday, January 9, regarding a possible remote day.

If RVC moves to a remote day, we will use multiple communication channels to notify students, employees, and the community. Those channels include:

• Email to all students and employees using RVC email addresses
• College social media channels
• RockValleyCollege.edu website (alert banner)
• Messaging via RVC Alerts

We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we continue to monitor the predicted winter weather conditions.
