Inclement Weather Questions

As we approach months of questionable weather, it’s great to know our after school protocols. We follow the School Districts policy and judgements when it comes to weather cancellations.

  • If after school activities are canceled due to weather, our program is also canceled and you must pick up your participant at the dismissal bell. Please note there are no after school staff on site when this takes place, so you must be at the school for dismissal.
  • If school has early dismissal due to weather, our program is also canceled.
  • If school is completely canceled due to weather, our program is also canceled.

In the event of cancellations of weather, you will be credited the day you prepaid for. This credit will go back onto the payment method you used to pay tuition.
