Notifications for Weather Closure
In the event that classes are canceled due to weather, the college will contact local media outlets including television and radio stations in Yakima and Tri-Cities. Be sure to listen for clarification on whether the closure is for Yakima Campus, Grandview Campus, or one of our learning centers. The notice will also include information about whether day and/or evening classes are affected. Evening students, please check the website in the late afternoon, as the status of the closure may change if the weather changes. The college will resume regular business hours the following day unless otherwise notified. RAVE alerts, schoolreport.org, and the YVC website will also be used to communicate weather closures and updates.
