WEATHER AND DELAY/CANCELLATION POLICY
Feb. 18-22 registered families:
We've sent you an email with details on our weather policy and approach for tomorrow. We are watching the weather reports closely, and our approach is always to open if we can. We make the final determination based on our ability to reach our program location safely. Safety is always first at the Squad, so, for example, if weather conditions are manageable in the morning, but predicted to become less safe in the afternoon/early evening, we will make our decision based on that.
How we'll communicate the news. If we have a delayed opening or we're forced to close for the day, we'll send an email to registered families as early as possible, and we will post the same info to our website, and to our Twitter and Facebook pages (both are @UrbanAdvSquad).
Cancellation policy. Our policy is that if we must close due to weather, we will offer a credit for a future program day(s). That is because we rely heavily on program fees to fund each program, from staffing to research/development to supplies. If a credit, as opposed to a refund poses a financial hardship for your family, you can let us know and we will refund your money.

How to support your Squad
Our fall 2018 fundraising efforts raised just under $2000! We are excited about this progress, but we need much more support for our programs and scholarships. Every dollar really does make a difference! Please consider a year-end donation to help us kick off a strong 2019:

Why do you love your Squad?
"Getting our kids out of bed in the morning often takes some convincing; however, there are a few never-fail exceptions. Whenever I whisper 'you have Urban Adventure Squad today...' they scramble out from the covers and jump into their day clothes, eager to get their special day started!" --UAS parent
