Weather-Related and Emergency Closings

When severe weather or emergencies (snow, ice, flooding, power failures) require the College to be closed, notification will be made through text messages, announcements on the BRCC website, by the greeting message on the College main telephone number (540-234-9261), and by local radio and television stations. In the absence of any announcement, the College is open and students are expected to be in attendance. Please be sure you sign up for text alerts at

Since the College serves a large geographic area, students are expected to exercise their own judgment when hazardous conditions exist in their areas. In the event that a student must miss a class for weather-related or emergency conditions, the student is obligated to notify the instructor as soon as possible and arrange for appropriate make-up work.
