The Center hours may, occasionally, be adjusted due to weather conditions. If Amherst College does not open, is delayed, or has an early closing for any emergency or emergency weather situation Woodside will follow suit.

Woodside reserves the right to close even if Amherst College remains open. We place the safety of our teachers and families as our top priority, In the case of inclement weather, there may be a delayed opening, early closing or full day closure. Early closures will be determined no later than 12:30 on “snow days.” Staff will let families know through the Brightwheel application or we will make phone calls, to be on alert on days of worsening travel conditions.

The Director will use area forecasts as a guide. On days of questionable weather, please check your Brightwheel app for any updates.
