Weather policy

It is the policy of AASC to remain open during most periods of inclement weather; however, where extraordinary circumstances warrant, due to weather or other unforeseen business interruption, the company reserves the right to close the facility.

In the event of school closures/delays, the AASC office will follow District 11. All classes, events, and meetings scheduled prior to 10 am will be rescheduled. Members are encouraged to check their e-mail during times of inclement weather and as they will be sent any notifications regarding closure through this form of communication. 

The AASC office will make every attempt possible to let members know ahead of time of all cancellations that occur. In the event of a full office closure, we will post this on the home page of our website.
