Inclement Weather Policy
The Worcester Center for Crafts generally follows the Worcester State University (WSU) inclement weather policy relative to building closings and class cancellations. Delayed openings and cancellation announcements will be made on the Craft Center's Facebook page and on our website.
The Worcester Center for Crafts schedules make-up classes when possible for sequential classes. Students will be contacted via email from email@example.com regarding cancellations of their courses.
Evening and Weekend courses: There may be instances where the weather is expected to clear early enough in the day for an evening or weekend course to run as originally scheduled. The offices will generally make an assessment of the weather conditions, and students will be notified by 2PM via email if a closure will continue through the evening or if the class will run as scheduled.
Please be sure to check the Facebook page for must up-to-date information.
Online courses: It is anticipated that all courses being offered online will run as scheduled even in the event that the Worcester Center for Crafts is closed due to inclement weather. Unless you are informed otherwise by your instructor or by the Registration Office, please assume that your class is taking place as usual.
