When it comes to bad weather, like snow, FBC does not follow the school closing (which one do we follow? The city, the private schools, and the surrounding counties never make the same decisions). We make our own decisions… Classes start at 4:00 so often times things have melted away. If we decide to close, we will send out a mass email, post on the website and make an announcement on the voicemail at the studio stating that we are closed. If we are open, we won’t do anything. When do we make our decision? For the day classes, we make the decision at noon. For the afternoon classes, we make our decision by 2:00. For Saturday am classes, we make the decision by 8:00am. Please remember that FBC is located in the City and our streets do get scraped, sanded and salted quickly. If we are open but you do not feel it is safe to come, please stay home. If you ever miss a class, your child can make up in another class on another day or time.
NOTE: What happens if the weather is supposed to turn bad during our evening classes? Like tonight? I am monitoring the weather radar and hourly forecast predictions. I try to make my decision based on the information from the national weather service. So for tonight, I plan on having classes as scheduled. BUT, if the weather starts to turn bad, I will immediately send out a mass email canceling the rest of classes for the night. It looks like it will be flurries and a dusting and not reach freezing temperatures until 12am. But weather is unpredictable. As I stated, if we are open but you do not feel it is safe to come, please stay home. If you ever miss a class, your child can make up in another class on another day or time.
