- In case of inclement weather, ATYP’s Kalamazoo campus will close when the Kalamazoo Public Schools close (and/or when WMU’s campus is closed due to weather). The Battle Creek campus will close when Battle Creek Public Schools close, or if WMU's facilities there close. ATYP school closing information is available on WWMT.com and will be posted on Facebook. Occasionally, weather on campus differs from outlying areas; families should use their best judgment about the decision to travel.
- If ATYP cannot meet in person because of the weather, every attempt will be made to hold classes online. Even if your home school has a snow day, ATYP classes will be held virtually.
- In case of a Tornado Watch, classes will be held as scheduled. Parents should use their own discretion in case of severe weather in their location. If there is a Tornado Warning at the start of/end of class time, parents and students should stay in place until the danger has passed.
