Don't forget that the Y is here for you during delays, early releases, or snow days!

What happens when school is out for weather related delays, early dismissals, or cancellations? The following will help you be prepared for any of these situations.

Snow Day Programs

If school is closed prior to program start time due to inclement weather, a program will be held at YMCA Centers and other predetermined school sites. For the most up to date information and for program locations, visit our Facebook, or call our weather line at (317) 532-4919. Fees for Snow Days are in addition to regular before and after care fees.

Early Dismissal

If your child’s school releases after 1:00pm, our staff will provide care at the school location (with school’s permission) until parents/guardians or their designee are able to pick up their children. To ensure the safety of our children, families, and staff, please plan to pick up as soon as possible. If the school calls for early release before 1:00pm, there will be no Y service provided to ensure safety of children and staff. We will offer a program at designated YMCA locations, if locations are open. Families are responsible for transporting their child to the designated YMCA location, if a program is offered. If your child is an after school participant, there are no extra fees for these days. If you child does not use after school care, there are additional fees for this service.

School Delays

If the start of school is delated, the YMCA staff will make every effort to be at your child’s school by the designated start time. On these days, the staff will stay until school begins. This is available at before school sites only. If your child is a before school participant, there are no extra fees for these days. If your child does not use before school care, there are additional fees for this service.

If school is cancelled during a delay, our program will be cancelled as well. We will offer a program at designated YMCA locations, if locations are open. Families will be responsible for picking up their child as soon as possible. Families are responsible for transporting their child to the designated YMCA location, if program is offered.


You do NOT need to be a Y member to use these programs, so please share with other families in your communities so that no one gets stuck out in the cold! Check our Facebook for the most up to date information on where care is available, or contact our office during business hours at (317) 484-9622.
