Inclement Weather Policy


All Parks & Recreation programs and events are subject to cancellation in the event of inclement weather. Program participants will be notified as soon as possible if a program will be cancelled and/or rescheduled due to weather. Our priority will be to reschedule a program on a new date in the event of weather cancellation. However, in the event that we are unable to reschedule; program participants will receive a pro-rated refund for those classes.
