A decision on whether or not to hold class will be made around 2pm on weekdays and 8am on weekends; we will not automatically close if schools are closed and if weather conditions deteriorate during the day, we may close when the schools were open. If weather conditions are deemed safe in Grand Rapids, GRCT will still hold class.
In the event a class is cancelled, we will extend the term out 1 additional week to make up the class.
