In situations where inclement weather may affect the normal operation of Rend Lake College, or when circumstances beyond the college’s control may affect working conditions and create a need to call off classes or close the campus for whatever reason, notice to students and the public will be sent in multiple ways. Alerts will be sent out via the Wireless Emergency Notification System, a free service which alerts subscribers to school closings via text message and / or email. To register for WENS, visit www.rlc.edu/wens. Campus closures also are posted to the college website at www.rlc.edu, posted on the college’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/rendlakecollege, sent via the college's Twitter account, and emailed to student Warriormail accounts. The college will notify area television and radio stations as soon as possible when a decision is made to close campus in order to get the announcement on the air.
