Important Updates & FAQ

Inclement Weather Policy:

In case of inclement weather, please note our policy: If the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School System cancels school, then our Lifelong Learning classes are cancelled on that day. If the WS/FC School System operates on a delay, then our Lifelong Learning classes will be held on that day, as regularly scheduled. Whenever a Lifelong Learning class is cancelled due to inclement weather/hazardous driving conditions, we will make every effort to make up the class within a reasonable amount of time. Above all else, please use caution and good judgement, and be safe!


Emergency Class Cancellation Policy:

If a Lifelong Learning class has to be cancelled due to teacher illness, family/staff emergency or building issues, class enrollees will be notified via email at the earliest possible convenience.  Additionally, the Lifelong Learning main phone number (336-758-5232) will be updated to indicate class has been cancelled.    A makeup class will be scheduled within a reasonable amount of time.
