Dear NOCE Campus Community,

I hope this message finds you well. As we continue to navigate the challenges of winter weather, I want to inform you that our North Orange County Community College District (NOCCCD) leadership is actively monitoring local weather forecasts and alerts in response to a series of winter storms. The safety of our students, faculty, and staff is our top priority, and we are committed to making informed decisions that align with the surrounding school districts. We understand the importance of consistency across all District sites, and our decisions will be made with that goal in mind.

At this time, no campus closures have been determined for Monday, February 5, 2024, but we are closely evaluating the situation. Our NOCCCD facility crews will be conducting thorough inspections on the morning of Monday, February 5, 2024, to assess the safety and readiness of our facilities.

Please expect another email update tomorrow morning (2/5/24) following the facility inspections. This message will provide you with the latest information on the status of NOCE campuses, including any potential closures or precautionary measures.

Your safety is of utmost importance to us, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we navigate these weather challenges together. If you have any immediate concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to your immediate management supervisor.

In the meantime, we encourage everyone to prioritize safety.
