Weather Closings – The Center will follow the Amherst Regional Public Schools’ system regarding inclement weather. If school is closed or dismissed early, classes will be postponed and rescheduled for the end of the session. We will do our best to provide an online update during storms, but always feel free to call and inquire.

Observation Policy – We will have an informal sharing at the end of the semester, and hope to create additional performance opportunities for our students throughout the year. Please speak with us directly if you’d like to observe before then.
