What about inclement weather?

For weekly classes, our general rule is to follow the Melrose Public Schools for closings due to weather. However, occasionally we have opened in the afternoon for groups after weather clears. We will post closings onthe home page, so please check there for clarity. We will provide one makeup due to weather at the end of the session.
