FAQs

How do I know if my class is cancelled?

Occasionally due to unforeseen circumstances Smith Vocational Adult Community Education must cancel a class. Cancelled classes are made up (same day of week and time) by extending the finish date of the course, unless other arrangements are made between the instructor and the class and approved by the director. When day school is cancelled due to snow conditions or other weather or emergency events, evening classes are also cancelled. Look for the Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School cancellation notices on the following stations: WWLP-TV Springfield Channel 22 and WGGB-TV Springfield Channel 40.

In the event day classes are not cancelled and the weather worsens, if a decision to cancel evening classes is made, it will be relayed to the same stations by 4 pm. (If evening classes are going to be held as usual, there will be no notice).


What is your refund policy?

A full refund is made if a workshop is cancelled. Withdrawal 7 calendar days prior to the first class results in a refund minus a $10 non-refundable registration fee. There will be no refunds for withdrawal after the seven calendar day deadline. Please allow 4 weeks for processing your refund.
