Weather Statement

Should it become necessary to cancel classes due to inclement weather or other emergencies, announcements will be made through local radio and television stations.

How to Watch A Good Class Disappear

Most of our classes are cost-recovery and we need a minimum number of students enrolled early to keep the program running. When too many people wait until the last minute to register, great classes taught by excellent instructors get cancelled.
Don't be dissapointed - REGISTER EARLY!
