Winter Weather Policy at 577

Jan 18, 2024 | News & Updates

With snowy days in the forecast, here is a reminder of the 577 Winter Weather Policy:

If Wood County issues a snow emergency, please follow these guidelines:

Level One: 577 is open as normal. Classes, meetings, and events will continue as planned.

Please note we may have to close/cancel in real-time upon changing weather forecasts. If this occurs, we will post an update on social media and contact all participants about the status of their class or meeting.

Level Two: If a Level Two weather emergency is issued for Wood County, 577 may close the grounds and cancel classes, meetings, and events until the weather emergency warnings are lifted or reduced to Level One. A notice will go out on all social media channels and to class participants if we are closed and/or classes and meetings are cancelled.

Please note: If Wood County is under a Level One or no snow emergency, but surrounding counties are Level Two and above, students should contact us if they cannot make it to class safely and may request a refund or credit.

Level Three: The 577 Foundation will be closed until the weather emergency level is reduced to Level Two or lower. All events, meetings, and classes are cancelled. Please stay home, safe, and warm. A notice will go out on all social media channels and to class participants if we are closed and classes are cancelled.
