ACC Announcement: Campuses & Centers Closed

Tuesday, January 28, 2014, 8:38 a.m.
ACC Campuses and Centers Closed

Dear ACC Faculty, Staff, and Students,

First, I sincerely apologize for the changing notices. The weather and road conditions changed quickly, and unfortunately, exactly during the morning commuter period. ACC, along with the city, county, University of Texas, and numerous school districts had decided around 3:00 a.m. this morning to operate on a regular schedule due to favorable weather reports and after frequent conference calls with meteorologists, emergency management officials, city and county transportation officials, etc. However, conditions have changed, and the roads are not good. ACC campuses and centers will be closed for the rest of today. ACC Police Department officers are at all campuses. If you already are at a campus, please go inside and stay until it is safe to return home. The roads are heavily trafficked with delays. We anticipate opening tomorrow on a regular schedule. Please check the ACC homepage for the latest information. I will continue to keep you updated. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me anytime on my cell at 512-415-5767.

Mary Hensley, Ed.D.

    Dr. Hensley,
    I’m sure everyone realizes how quickly situations can change, especially the weather, especially in Texas. I want to thank you for your sincere concern for all of the ACC students, staff, and faculty during any kind of crisis. In fact, the best part of bad weather now is reading your emails telling us, “Go back to bed and stay warm.”
    Thank you!
    L. Thune

      The title of the announce says it is. You know it helps to read the title of things before asking those kind of questions. Kind of the whole business of college.
