Winter Bad Weather Policy: if the forecast is for 2 or more inches of snow, or freezing rain and ice four hours before a scheduled class, that class may be delayed by one week. If that happens again for that same class, that class may be canceled and not made up. In that case, attempts will be made to cover all materials in an abbreviated class schedule.

Summer Bad Weather Policy: classes cannot be canceled due to thunderstorms because they are too isolated and unpredictable to affect all students. Please call Great Companions any time prior to your scheduled class if you are aware of tornado warnings in your travel area.
