Cancellation/Closing/Delay of Classes

Cancellation/Closing/Delay of Classes

In the event of an emergency or severe weather conditions, every attempt will be made to post cancellation/closing announcements to the DACC website (, DACC employee and student email accounts, the DACC main switchboard (217-443-3222), and the Emergency Text Message Alert System before 6 am. These media are the official channels utilized by DACC to communicate with employees and students.

In the event of an emergency or severe weather conditions resulting in a facility closure, an announcement will be posted that, “DACC is CLOSED” and students and employees need not report to campus. If it is determined that snow removal and road conditions will permit safe travel later in the day, the College will announce a DELAYED START and will state a specific time that employees and students should report and classes should resume. In the event that weather necessitates “DACC is CLOSED” after the school day begins, all students and non-essential employees may go home.

Please note that users who have a mobile phone number on file in Colleague are automatically enrolled each August and must opt out to avoid receiving these messages. If your cell number is not on file, you may enroll on your own at:
