As long as there are no road closure or travel advisories, programs will run as planned.

If school is cancelled then both Adapted Programs and Cozy Corner will be cancelled for the day. Having said this, there are exceptions, as some instructors and contractors do not feel safe to travel in snowy conditions. Therefore, patrons are encouraged to reference our website and Facebook page for updates.
