GETTING EQUIPMENT TO SCHOOL: If students have their own ski equipment, they will not be allowed to take it to school on
public school buses. Parents should drop off ski equipment at school on each scheduled day. Please check in at the main office of your child’s school to find out where and at what time equipment may be dropped off.
CANCELLATION: If weather is bad, the program may be postponed either by the mountain or if school is cancelled or closed early. We will attempt to make up postponed afternoons if conditions make it possible. Typically make-up dates are made up at the end of each session; but make-ups will not necessarily be held on Thursdays. If the mountain closes for an afternoon, lessons will be provided during the make-up session. However, if the CommEd Center postpones due to weather but the mountain is running, the lessons missed will not be made up on the make up date. If you are unsure about the weather, please call the Community Education office at 978-251-5151 or check our website.
