Calendar, Closings, and Weather Policy

In general, if we think that the safety of our clients or staff will be compromised by making the journey into the studio, or by being on the road in general, we will close for the day. Because we provide transportation and services to people all over Dane County, we often look at schools and other agencies to determine what the consensus is regarding safety and travel. If most of the suburban schools close due to road safety or severe cold weather, its a good guess that we will close as well. If MMSD closes, its pretty much a guarantee that we will be closed. Sometimes we will be open in the morning but close in the afternoon, as foul weather moves into the area. When these circumstances arise, we will be in direct contact with all of you to confirm our status, and to make sure that the individuals that we support are safely supported and accounted for. Thanks in advance for understanding when and if inclement weather closings happen this year.

SNOW AND INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

Artworking is concerned for the safety of consumers and staff during inclement weather. Should travel advisories be announced, Artworking staff will call families to discuss cancellations for the day. In general, if we think that the safety of our clients or staff will be compromised by making the journey into the studio, or by being on the road in general, we will close for the day.
