Weather Related Delays/Closures

Classes: Early Childhood CARES classrooms will be closed if the district in which the classroom is located is closed. If a district has any delayed start, morning classes in that district will be canceled. Afternoon classes will run as scheduled. Please refer to radio and TV for school district closures due to weather.

Transportation: Districts that have school closures do not provide transportation. If a child attends a program in another district that is open, parents may transport their child to and from the program but it is not district responsibility.

Early Childhood CARES is affiliated with the College of Education, University of Oregon.
