PCCC Emergency Alert System

School was canceled today (Saturday 2/6) due to the predicted snow.  It's always interesting when they cancel school and that predicted snow never materializes.  I am reposting information about the school's emergency alert system, the "Panther Alert". 

Basically (and of course, this was partially in response to the shootings at Virginia Tech a few years back), the school has an automated system that will alert you to school closings and other emergencies via phone, email, and text. You can specify up to 6 phone numbers (cell, home, work), two email addresses, and a cell phone for text messages.

Link to Full Instructions

Short version of instructions: if you log in to your school portal account in Campus Cruiser, you would click on the tab at the top labeled "Panther Alert". Click on that. Log in using your school email address - username@pccc.mailcruiser.com and your student ID number.

PS - remember your email is @pccc.mailcruiser.com - not @pccc.edu.

We'd better get this latest storm or they will never close the college again for inclement weather!!!
