    School Closings

    • Make sure you know the school district in which your child’s program is located. Be sure you have their website or snow closing number.

    Delays

    • If there is a delay in the school district in which the center program, or home-based program operates, staff will follow the district delayed schedule.
    • For children who attend a mid-day program or a part day program, a 2 hour delay means the session is cancelled.
    • For children who attend a full day classroom program, a 2-hour delay means that the program will start on a delayed schedule and begin 2 hours later than the typical start time.

    Early Dismissal

    • When weather forces a program to close early, families will be contacted to pick up their child/children.
    • If you have an appointment at one of our sites and the weather is inclement, please call first to ensure that the program is open.
