Delayed Start Friday, Jan. 21

With a Winter Storm Warning and safety top of mind, the South Texas College Administration has announced a delayed opening on all campuses this Friday, Jan. 21.  Business operations will begin at 9 a.m. instead of the regular hours of 8 a.m.

There is a freeze warning in effect for tonight and tomorrow with temperatures expected to dip into the 30’s and freezing rain and sleet forecast for the morning hours.  The Department of Public Safety is warning that driving conditions could be hazardous.

The National Weather Service is encouraging you to dress warmly and limit outdoor exposure. And, given the high winds and dangerously cold weather, you are encouraged to bring your pets and plants indoors.  Take measures to protect your pipes from freezing.

Again, South Texas College will have a delayed opening. Business hours will begin at 9 a.m.  This delayed opening does not affect students because all first-week classes are being conducted online due to a recent surge in COVID cases.
