In the event of bad weather or another kind of emergency, Northern Essex Community College may be required to close one or all of its campuses.
NECC administrators consider a number of factors in deciding whether to close the campus due to inclement weather. These factors include but are not limited to an assessment of the condition of our campuses and area roads and a review of weather predictions.
Even when the college is open, weather and driving conditions can vary, depending on your location. Students should use their own judgment about the safety of coming on campus.
If the college is open, but students decide that conditions in their area make it unsafe for them to travel, they should consult the attendance policy in their class syllabus or their instructor to learn how their absence will be treated.
Faculty and staff who determine that that conditions in their area make it unsafe to travel, can take approved vacation, personal leave, earned compensatory time, or sick time with satisfactory medical evidence. If there are extenuating circumstances or if they have questions, they are encouraged to consult with their supervisor or Steve Fabbrucci, vice president of human resources development. The Snow Emergency Policy provides additional details.
