Winter Weather Policy


In the case of inclement weather, the Recreation and Parks Department has the following Winter Weather Policy:

If the Avon Schools are closed for the day, then Recreation classes are cancelled for the day.

 Delayed opening: If Avon Schools have a delayed opening, then all morning classes are cancelled, with the exception of Morning Low Impact Aerobics (formerly Young at Heart) and Taz’s Fitness Challenge.  (Those two classes have their own policy)

 Early dismissal: If Avon Schools are dismissed early, then all afternoon and evening activities are cancelled.

 Cancellations are posted in 4 different locations:

Cancellations are posted on WTIC 1080 radio, WFSB and NBC30 television stations.

 Cancellations are also posted on the Town’s website at www.avon.ct.gov, then click on the Recreation and Park Department, and on the left side of the screen will be Recreation Notices. That’s where you will find cancellations. You can also subscribe to the website and cancellation emails will be sent to you directly.

 Cancellations are also posted on our cancellation line at 860-409-4365.

 Cancellations are also posted as an “Alert” at www.AvonRec.com

 Every effort will be made to make up cancelled classes, but a make up is not guaranteed. Classes cancelled due to circumstances beyond the control of the Recreation Department will not be made up or refunded.
