PROCEDURE ON BAD WEATHER
As we get into a period of potential bad weather, please note the team’s policy:
During non-school days in which the weather is bad or forecasted to be bad, the following steps will be taken to communicate the status of a practice or competition:
- An email will be sent at least one hour prior to the scheduled event with the status of the practice or competition.
Please note: even though practices may be held on bad weather days based on road conditions around Moeller, parents should use their judgment on their son’s attendance due to the road conditions around their home.
