    Winter Weather Conditions and Cancellations

    Any class may be cancelled due to bad weather and poor driving conditions. If there is any doubt about if a class will be held or cancelled, please check your email and our Facebook page first for announcements! I can also be reached by text at 412-302-6736 (identify yourself, please). I will try to notify everyone within a reasonable amount of time if classes will be cancelled. Many students are driving from far away areas, so even if the weather in Butler seems fine, the classes still may be cancelled. If you are in doubt, please stay home and stay safe – classes can be made up. Thank you!
