Inclement Weather

THE FAMILY YMCA INCLEMENT WEATHER PLAN
The Y will make every effort to stay open in the event of inclement weather; however, keeping in mind the safety of our employees, there may be times that we need to delay opening or even close our facility. Any closures/delays will be announced as noted under Notifications. In the event of a Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) / Los Alamos Public Schools (LAPS) delay or closure we will adhere to the following:

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

  • If school is cancelled before it starts, or at any time throughout the school day, there WILL BE NO After-School (A/S) program. If school remains open until its regular time but LANL is released early, the program will remain open for 1-hour after LANL’s closure. Please make every effort to pick up your child as soon as possible to ensure that your family and Y staff can get home safely.

  • If school is delayed on a Wednesday (10am start), there are no elementary classes; however, the A/S program will begin at 12pm, parents are expected to drop off their kids to their school gym site. If by 1pm no children have arrived at the A/S program site, it will be closed for the day.

  • If LANL is dismissed early but after the school day ends, parents should pick up children as soon as is safely possible at the A/S program.

  • If the Y closes on a Day Camp Day, there will be NO camp. Should weather conditions close the Y during Winter or Spring Break Camp, camp will be cancelled and parents will be notified via email.
