Classes resume at Okanagan College and UBC

Campuses base their decision on the weather forecast and road conditions

Tuesday will not be a snow day at Okanagan College or UBC Okanagan.

Very little new snow overnight has allowed road maintenance crews to catch up on snow clearing on priority routes. While a risk of freezing rain remains in the forecast, the commute should be better today than it was on Monday, according to UBC.

“We appreciate that local conditions will vary throughout the region and not everyone will be able to make it to class. Faculty and administrators are asked to accommodate the needs of those who cannot attend today,” states a release.

Okanagan College has announced that the Vernon campus and its trades facilities are open Tuesday.

However, OC’s Salmon Arm campus is closed Tuesday and all Kelowna college facilities are closed until noon to allow for snow removal.
