Snow Closing Policy

Snow Closing Policy

If NWTC is going to close due to weather, we will announce a Green Bay campus closing by 6:00 a.m. for day activities and by 3:00 p.m. for evening activities.

It is our general philosophy that we are providing education for work. We are tied to the policies of the general business community. Like our business partners, we will strive to remain open to serve our customers. Therefore, it is unlikely that we will close the Green Bay campus.

Circumstances that might cause us to close would be the inability to clear our parking lots and/or Green Bay Transit System is not operating. NWTC campus closings will not be linked to the K-12 system closings.

If the weather is threatening and campus stays open, the choice to report for class or work is ultimately up to the student or staff member. Every effort will be made to help the student make up educational experiences lost due to severe weather conditions.

Staff members who choose not to report to work should review available leave options with their supervisor when they return to work.

Special service for parents: K-12 school closings will be posted on television monitors for the benefit of students and staff who have children in elementary, middle and high school. As a service to our students, K-12 school closings in the metro Green Bay area will be announced.​
