Whenever there is a potential for snow and/or ice in any part of North Georgia, please be sure to check the news to see if your college is delayed or closed. Colleges will send a message to the student's official email address, post information on their websites and on other social media outlets. They will also send messages through their emergency alert systems. Please sign up at the college website to receive text alerts.
With regard to Lanier Technical College, if they close one campus, they close them all including Sims Early College. Therefore, if they must close the campus in Oakwood or Dahlonega where they are likely to see snow and ice, they will close the Barrow Campus and cancel classes at Sims Academy as well even if it is 70 degrees and sunny here. Students should make arrangements to be transported home if Lanier Tech is closed, or contact your Career Center Coordinator or Sherri Perry if you need to make an alternate arrangement.
