Inclement Weather Procedure

Membership Branches (Downtown, Northwest, Yorktown)

For the safety of our members, the children in our programs, and our staff who must travel to and from the Y, some modifications to our operations may be made during inclement weather. The YMCA utilizes Muncie Community Schools (MCS) as a guide for determining inclement weather schedule changes.

YMCA Group Exercise Classes, Programs and Youth Sports
  • If MCS is on a delay or closed, there will be no classes or programs before 12:00 p.m. A decision will be made by 2:00 p.m. for afternoon/evening classes and programs.
  • Whenever MCS is closed, any youth sports/programs held at those schools will be cancelled.
  • Classes cancelled due to weather will not be made up or credited.
  • Child Watch will open at normal hours during delays and school closings.
  • We post information on our Facebook, @YMCA of Muncie, www.muncieymca.org, WLBC, BLAKE FM, NASH FM and WERK radio stations.
  • This DOES NOT include Apple Tree YMCA programs or care.

In extreme weather conditions the YMCA might open later than normal, close early or be closed for the whole day.

Apple Tree YMCA

Apple Tree Site

In the event of inclement weather, Apple Tree YMCA will operate normal business hours of 6am-6pm unless extreme circumstances require the building to close such as loss of a utility. Families will be notified via automated message and closing will be listed on 104.1 WLBC, and Apple Tree YMCA’s Facebook page.

Burris Laboratory School site
  • If inclement weather occurs, Burris after school care will follow Burris Laboratory School’s inclement weather procedures.
  • If extracurricular activities are canceled, after school care will not be provided.
  • If Burris Laboratory School closes for the entire day, Burris after school children may attend Apple Tree YMCA according to procedures listed above and if the child has all current enrollment paperwork on file according to Apple Tree YMCA’s state licensing requirements.
  • No transportation will be provided.
MCS off site locations
  • If there is a two hour delay for Muncie Community schools, MCS off-site locations will open at 6am and care will be provided for the extended 2 hour period.
  • In the event of early dismissal, MCS off site locations will open to provide care.
  • If local schools close for the entire day, care will be provided at the Northwest YMCA from 6am- 6pm for children who are enrolled and /or have current enrollment paperwork on file. Additional fees will apply.
  • Families are asked to call ahead to secure a spot for all day care.
  • If there are not enough children who need full day care, Apple Tree YMCA reserves the right to only provide regularly scheduled PM care from 2:30pm-6pm.
Northwest YMCA site
  • If inclement weather conditions exist, Northwest YMCA after school care will follow the schools we serve inclement weather procedures.
  • If MCS closes for the entire day, Northwest YMCA will be open.
  • If there are not enough children who need full day care, Apple Tree YMCA reserves the right to only provide regularly scheduled PM care from 2:30pm-6pm.
