We try to never cancel classes. We reschedule. We would reschedule a class if we have bad weather or if our instructors are ill. This post is to let you know how & when we decide to reschedule a class due to weather.
In general if the public schools in Portsmouth & Hampton cancel school we may need to reschedule the class. This means the weather and road conditions are not good, it also means that some instructors may need to stay home with their children.
We do not cancel classes due to weather, we reschedule. We will try to reschedule for the same time on a different day within the same week or the same day the following week. The time might be slightly earlier or later depending upon what else is scheduled for that day. We do this because we know if you signed up for a morning class, or an evening class, it’s because that time of day works best for your schedule and we will do our best to reschedule at a time you can attend.
Any changes to the class schedule will be posted on our Facebook page – www.facebook.com/coastalcpr – this is the fastest way for us to get the information posted.
If the public schools in Portsmouth & Hampton are open classes will be held as scheduled.
If the public schools in Portsmouth & Hampton have a 2 hour delay, any morning classes will have a 30 minute to 2 hour delayed start. Some of our instructors may have children to put on school buses and need time to drive to the Training Center.
If the public schools in the area cancel (they usually do before 6am) and there is already significant snow on the ground (3-4″ and still snowing) the class will be rescheduled.
If the public schools cancel, but we don’t have a lot of snow we’ll decide based on how much snow is is on the roads near where we live. We know some of our class participants are driving a distance to come to our classes, and we do not want anyone driving on unsafe roads. Ourselves included.
We will post any changes or updates on FB approximately 2 hours before the class start time and will follow up with emails to everyone. If you are driving a distance and need to be notified earlier than that please email or call us and let us know when you need to know by and the best method to reach you by – email/text/phone – and the email or number to use. If we post that the class is on as scheduled then we will not be contacting you. You’ll only receive communication from us if we need to reschedule.
If we do need to reschedule everyone registered for the class will receive an email with rescheduling options. These options might not work for everyone and we will reschedule the class to a time & date that the majority of the class can attend. If this does not match your schedule you may cancel and any course charges you have paid, except for non-refundable digital links or ebooks, will be refunded.
