Inclement Weather Policy

If the Eau Claire School District cancels school, the Youth Symphony will cancel rehearsal.  If schools are dismissed early, rehearsal will also be cancelled.  If inclement weather occurs after school hours, any rehearsal cancellations will be communicated on this website and on social media as soon as possible. If school is delayed 2 hours, rehearsal will be held, unless otherwise noted on this website.
