Q: Does BDT cancel classes when local school districts are closed?
Not necessarily. Often the weather is different in the evening than it is early in the morning. We will cancel based on the road conditions for our class times. As always, please use your own discretion when traveling to class.
Q: What if a class is cancelled due to teacher illness or other factors?
We will attempt to notify families in a timely manner regarding any cancellations. Please consider signing up for our text message alerts by texting @bdt to the phone number (413) 566-7374. This service is free and will be the fastest way to receive updates.
Q: How are cancelled classes made up?
