Emergency Notifications

KCC will make closing announcements as far in advance as possible in cases of severe weather, utility outages or other circumstances. High school closings govern the KCC classes offered at those locations.

School Messenger alerts

Through its School Messenger service, KCC provides students and staff with phone, text and email alerts for emergency and weather closings. Phone and email alerts are sent for class cancellations and student services related notifications.
