If the Assabet Valley School District cancels all weekend activities due to inclement weather, the cancellation will be broadcast on radio/TV. However, if the Assabet Valley School District does not cancel weekend activities, your instructor may still decide to cancel class. It will be the student’s responsibility to call the instructor on the morning of the class to see if class will be cancelled. (Remember to ask the instructor for his/her phone number on the first day of class). If class is cancelled, the course will be extended one week.
Occasionally due to unforeseen circumstances (snow, power outages, instructor illness, etc.) the Center for Continuing Education must cancel a class. Cancelled classes are always made up (same day of week and time) by extending the finish date of the course, unless other arrangements are made between the instructor and the class and approved by the director.
When day school is cancelled due to snow conditions or other weather or emergency events, evening classes are also cancelled.
