ADK Folk School Inclement Weather Policy

by Eve Wenger

The Adirondack Folk School has adopted the official inclement weather policy of following the Hadley-Luzerne Central School District’s closure schedule here in Lake Luzerne, NY. If the HLCSD is on a two hour delay or closed, we will in turn follow. In the event of a closure, we will make every effort to post on our Facebook page and here on our website. If the weather is expected to interfere with a class, we will alert the effected instructors and students as soon as possible and arrange plans accordingly. If you have any questions or concerns, with this policy or anything else, please feel free to contact us here at the school; 518-696-2400 or email Scott at [email protected] Thank you.
