With disparity issues, achievement gaps and other issues plaguing our community, there IS one thing you can do if you want every child to have a secure future:
When Madison Schools are closed due to inclement weather, all youth and senior program activities scheduled that day are canceled. Center facilities may remain open and be staffed on a limited basis. If severe weather requires us to close the Center on a weekend, you'll find a message on our phone system and here on our home page to let you know. In some situations, private events may still take place even though the Center is closed due to severe weather. If you were planning to attend a scheduled private event, please contact your event's organizer for more information.
