Inclement Weather Policy

The Mountlake Terrace Recreation & Parks Department follows the Edmonds School District’s recommendations regarding closure of schools due to inclement weather. What this means is that:

If School is Closed:
If the Edmonds School District has cancelled school due to inclement weather, the Recreation Pavilion will open two hours late for drop in programs. Programs such as all Kids Krew sites, Junior Kids Krew, Preschool, Kindergarten Readiness, Swimming Lessons, Water Fitness, Land Fitness and Dance Classes with a start time prior to 3:00 p.m. will be cancelled. Weather conditions will be reassessed in the afternoon for later programs.

If School is Delayed:
If the Edmonds School District has a two hour late start, the Recreation Pavilion will open two hours late for drop in programs. Junior Kids Krew and all Kids Krew sites will also start two hours late, opening at 8:30 a.m. instead of 6:30 a.m. In this situation, Preschool and Kindergarten Readiness will be cancelled. For Swimming Lessons and Dance Classes on delayed start days, we will cancel the classes held during the delay. All classes held after the delay will begin at their regularly scheduled time.

For information on Swimming Lessons and Dance Classes with a start time after 3:00 p.m. on days when the Edmonds School District cancels classes, please call the Recreation Pavilion at 425-776-9173 after 2:30 p.m. to find out whether these classes will be held. In all cases, conditions will be reassessed.

Preschool, Kindergarten Readiness, Swimming Lessons and Dance Classes that are missed due to weather or closure of the Pavilion will not be made up. Make up days for Junior Kids Krew and Kids Krew will be the same as the Edmonds School District make-up days. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please feel free to call us at 425-776-9173.
