Please leave extra travel time to get to your lessons or classes in the case of poor weather.
The Eastman Community Music School will not automatically close if area schools are closed. In the event of a school-wide closure, we will notify you via the following:
- An email alert will be sent to all faculty, students, and parents. To assist this procedure, please be sure the ECMS office has your most recent email address on file.
- A notice will be posted on our website and Facebook page.
- Alerts will be issued through local media outlets (television, radio) for school closings and delays:
- If the school closes during lessons and classes, ECMS faculty members are instructed to call their students’ parents to inform them of the closing and arrange for pick up.
If we close, lessons will be made up. Classes or ensembles canceled due to weather emergencies generally will not be made up.
If ECMS remains open, individual teachers may opt to reschedule their activities due to varying conditions beyond our downtown campus.
