Info about Vol State Weather Closings and Delays

Don't get excited folks, this is an old photo. Let's discuss Vol State weather closings and delays. We are separate from the county school systems in most locations. So, Sumner County Schools could be closed and we could be open. We don't have school buses to worry about, so this is often the case. The best method to find out is through free text alerts. There is a link below to sign-up. If you have already signed up, you don't need to sign up again. You will get the info quickest and straight to your phone via text alerts.

Second best is the Vol State website home page. We also put out the info on Twitter and on the main Vol State Facebook page. It may or may not appear in your news feed, due to Facebook throttling, so if you use Facebook be sure to come directly to this page. You can post on Facebook all day long, asking if we are closed. That is up to you. But don't expect a response. We won't post anything until we actually make the decision to be closed or delayed. Once the decision is made, the posting will go out quickly. In most circumstances we won't post that we will be open. If you don't hear from us, that means classes are on as usual.

Finally, you are in college. It is up to you to decide whether you can attend classes or not. If driving conditions are not safe where you are, and you need to miss a class, you can contact your instructor to make up the work. We want everyone to be safe.

We have separate closings for Highland Crest, Livingston, the Main Campus and the other learning sites.

Here is the text alert link.
