"There's no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing."
Sir Ranulf Fiennes
Weather and Gear
We will hold courses rain (snow) or shine, and we will be outside in all weather, with the exception of blizzards and thunderstorms. Students are encouraged to dress for the weather each week. Proper rain/snow gear is necessary for these courses. During severe weather or if it is too wet/cold to be outside for the full class time, we bring students in to complete out nature study indoors. This allows for our classes to be consistent, 4 hours throughout the year, no matter the weather!

Student safety is our number one priority. Courses will be moved indoors for part or all of the class when the forecast includes…
Thunderstorms, tornados or severe weather
Icy roads deemed unsafe for driving
Heat index above 90° F
Wind chill below 0° F
Heavy rain with a wind chill below 45° F
Wind gusts above 35 mph
Classes are cancelled if Comstock Park Public Schools issues a snow day. We have one scheduled make up day (per class day of the week) at the end of the school year.
