Program Closing Procedure

The Watervliet Civic Center Before & After School Program operates on the same schedule as the Watervliet City School District. There is no program during snow days or early dismissal due to inclement weather or other type of emergency. If school is delayed in the morning for any period of time due to inclement weather there will be no Before School Program. If the Watervliet City School District cancels all after school activities there will be no Watervliet Civic Center After School Program.

If the Watervliet City School district cancels all after school activities you will receive an automated message from the Watervliet Civic Center alerting you that the After School program has been canceled. If you have changed your contact information and have not filled a program change form; please fill one out as soon possible. This is to ensure that you can be notified in the event of an emergency.
