Campus reopening Friday

Pierce College will resume classes and operations on Friday, Dec. 8, following today’s closure prompted by nearby wildfires.

According to an email sent by Pierce officials, the air quality nearby has remained moderate throughout the day, and classes will resume regularly tomorrow.

Pierce administration said that they will continue to monitor air quality levels throughout the evening. Updates will be provided through the Pierce website, emergency text alerts and emails.

The campus was closed the entirety of today due to the surrounding wildfires.

Pierce College President Kathleen Burke said a delayed notification was sent to students 10 minutes before 8 a.m. because administration was considering all factors in the closure.

A previous email said that the closure was due to high winds, and bad air quality and traffic caused by the nearby brush fires.

Burke said additional factors included the closure of nearby schools.
