From San Diego Community College District:
Due to the lingering effects of Tropical Storm Hilary, all campuses and facilities of the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) will be closed Monday, August 21. All classes at San Diego City, Mesa, Miramar, and Continuing Education colleges are canceled. The district anticipates a full reopening Tuesday, August 22.
According to SDCCD Acting Chancellor Gregory Smith, the decision to close the district is being made so that all facilities can be inspected as the brunt of Hilary’s wind and rain is still expected Sunday evening.
“The health and safety of our students and employees is our highest priority,” said Smith. “While we have received no reports of damage to any district facilities, we believe it best for the community to keep as many people as possible off local roads and highways.”
Monday would have been the first day of classes for approximately 50,000 students across the district. The district is informing students and employees via text and email. Additional updates will also be posted on the SDCCD (sdccd.edu) and college websites.
