Inclement Weather and Program Status Lines

We strive to operate our programs regardless of weather - canceling is a last resort. However:  

  • While most programs will be held despite the weather, schedules and drop-off points may change.
  • Should lightning be a factor, outdoor activities may be moved indoors.
  • If a snow emergency is declared in Howard County, programs may be closed early or canceled.
  • If a snow emergency is declared in Howard County, all parks are closed.
  • If schools are closed, delayed or dismissed early due to inclement weather or if the Board of Education suspends after-school activities, Recreation and Parks programs in schools may be affected.
  • In the event of inclement weather, call the Inclement Weather/Program Status numbers below for up-to-date information.
  • You should check with your instructor about make-up dates for canceled sessions.
