Winter Weather Safety

Unlike our other programs, Winter Wednesdays will observe the 2-hour delay and cancellation alerts as issued by the Buncombe County School system (BCSS). What this means is that if BCS cancels or delays the start of school due to unsafe winter driving conditions, so will Forest Floor.

Click here for more details on this policy and how to stay notified of these alerts. This information is also provided in the Confirmation Email sent upon registering.
