Winter Cancellation Notification Procedures

Stay up-to-date when bad weather occurs with the Remind App

The winter months are upon us and that can often bring challenging weather conditions. The safety of our families and staff is the number one priority whenever a decision is made regarding closures and delays.

The Capital Baptist staff monitors weather conditions daily, reviews information from emergency management and state highway officials about road conditions, and inspects the conditions of sidewalks and parking lots to make the determination if events on campus must be cancelled, delayed, or closed early. Due to the speed of information updates, our Remind notification system will be the official AWANA Club notification system to provide parents with timely information regarding all cancellations or schedule changes.

On a Sunday, the Capital Baptist staff will decide by 3 pm if AWANA and other activities on the church’s campus will be cancelled. The church’s communication channels will be updated as quickly as possible including email, text messages, website, social media, church phone and local news stations. A Remind notification and text messages will be sent to parents after 3 pm, so please check for cancellation notices to find out if we will still have Awana and evening classes.
