UCCC Safety Planning & Preparation
Inclement Weather/ School Closings
In the event that weather or other emergency conditions exist that require UCCC to open late, the Center will open at 9:30 a.m. The decision to open late will be made by 6 a.m., if possible.
If UCCC must close early due to weather or other emergency conditions, the decision will be made by 1 p.m. and the Center will close at 3 p.m.
Watch and listen for school closing on the following stations:
In case of school closing, you will receive a telephone call from our automated phone system, SchoolReach, as soon as the decision to close has been made. Please be sure we have an up-to-date contact number at all times. We will also do our best to post on our home page and Facebook page.
To check past messages on SchoolReach, or if you feel a message has been missed, simply dial 855-955-8500 to hear up to 30-days past message history. Note: Your call must originate from a phone number to which a message was originally sent. SchoolReach has an app (Android & iOS) for managing the messages you receive.
The Center performs monthly safety drills to ensure preparedness in the event of an emergency. Each month, two safety drills are held. One is a fire drill and additionally one of the following three safety drills occurs on a rotating basis: tornado, earthquake, and intruder.
