If these do NOT make a weather
announcement about Northeast, assume that classes WILL meet at the regular time.
For current National Weather Service
information and severe weather statements (not NACC announcements), go to:
Service (North Alabama)
cover in the nearest safe zone when a storm warning is
announced via PA system or NACC Alert (SchoolCast).
All one-story buildings and Knox will evacuate to safe zones
in two-story buildings. Those near the new Math Science
Engineering Building (MT) will use its Storm Shelter.
All two-story buildings except Knox have a safe zone inside
them as listed below. If people prefer to leave these safe
and go to the MT Storm Shelter they can do so, but it will
be at their own risk.
AX (Annex) - MT Storm Shelter
BE (Campbell Business Ed Bldg) - Rooms 100 and 110 and
EN (English Bldg) – MT Storm Shelter
GY (Beck Health and Fine Arts\Gym) - Downstairs rear hallway
HE (Health Ed Bldg) - Rooms 110 and 106 and downstairs east
IC (Industry Training Ctr/Alabama Career Ctr) - Room 101 or
MT Storm Shelter
IS (Industrial Systems Technology Bldg) – If time
allows, MT Storm
Shelter; if not, center hallway away from doors
KX (Knox Science Bldg) MT Storm Shelter
LI (Library/Word Learning Resources Ctr) Audio-Visual Room
101 and Distance Learning Room 102
LY (Bevill Lyceum) - Front vestibule between lobby and
auditorium, closing all doors; green room, rehearsal room,
dressing rooms at the back of the stage, restrooms in lobby,
east corridor; or move to Pendley Bldg rear hallway
MS (Math and Science Bldg, old) – MT Storm Shelter
MT (Math Science Engineering Tech Bldg, new) – MT Storm
PA (Pendley Admin Bldg) Downstairs rear hallway and break
SI (Salon Institute) - Offices, break room, and
SC (Student Center) - MT Storm Shelter
TC (Tech Bldg) - Move to WD Bldg Room 132
WA (Wallace Admin Bldg) – MT Storm Shelter
WD (Workforce Development Bldg) - Room 132
Restrooms without glass qualify as safe zones but should be
the last choice for shelter because they should remain
available for use as restrooms.

Inclement weather may sometimes determine whether
or not the college will be open. Northeast personnel have a number of sources of
information available to decide if the college should be closed due to icy roads
and snow and will be monitoring weather conditions very carefully.
If the college is to be closed for day classes, this information
will be sent to student and staff email and phones by SCHOOLCAST. Information also will be provided to LOCAL
TELEVISION AND RADIO STATIONS so that they might give
notification by no later than 6:30 a.m. If the college is to be closed for evening classes, this information will be made
available to the media for release no later than 4:00 p.m. Decisions to close will be made and released at the earliest
DELAYS: Depending on highway conditions, on some occasions the college may have a
LATE OPENING. It may, for example, be announced that the college will open at 10:00
a.m. Under these circumstances students would go directly to their normally
scheduled 10:00 a.m. class and follow the rest of the day's schedule.
If there is NO SchoolCast or media announcement for a
specific date, assume that classes WILL meet at the regular time.
EMERGENCIES: In the event of an announced weather warning during classes, the college will
evacuate classrooms to safe areas.
Be mindful that weather conditions in Northeast Alabama can change very quickly
and that our students come from a diverse geographic area. On some occasions
road conditions in most locations of our service area may be fine, but
dangerous in a few isolated places. Therefore, when inclement weather occurs,
please use caution and your best judgment in deciding whether to drive to
Northeast or not. Your safety and that of our staff is our number one concern.
Dr. David Campbell, President
