Inclement Weather Policy

In case of inclement weather, please note our policy: If the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School System cancels in-person school, then our Lifelong Learning classes are canceled on that day. If the WS/FC School System operates on a delay, then our Lifelong Learning classes will be held on that day, as regularly scheduled. Whenever a Lifelong Learning class is canceled due to inclement weather/hazardous driving conditions, we will make every effort to make up the class within a reasonable amount of time. Above all else, please use caution and good judgment, and be safe!

Emergency Class Cancellation Policy

If a Lifelong Learning class has to be canceled due to teacher illness, family/staff emergency or building issues, class enrollees will be notified via email at the earliest possible convenience. Additionally, the Lifelong Learning main phone number (336.758.5232) will be updated to indicate class has been canceled. A makeup class will be scheduled within a reasonable amount of time.
