Severe Weather Policy

On days of inclement weather, the Center will follow the University’s schedule for delays or closings.  There are days when the local schools operate on a delay or are closed and the university does not.  In this case, the Center may operate on a two-hour delay.    Closings and delays are posted on WMUR and on the Center’s outgoing phone message.  Families of children scheduled to attend the Center will need to call the family line at the Center (535-2299).  This number will be updated with the day, date, and the announcement of the delayed opening or closing on these days.  The information on this number will be updated as soon as we receive notification from the local school districts or the University.  Families may also sign up for the Remind Alert system which will send a text and/or email to accounts provided by the family.  Information about the Remind system will be sent to families early in the school year.

If you decide to keep your child at home on a severe weather day, we would appreciate a call from you to let us know.  This helps us plan staffing, which is a priority on days when some staff cannot make it to the Center.
