Program Cancellation
Acceptance of a program registration by Lake & Shore Community Recreation (L&SCR) does not guarantee that the program will operate. A minimum of 8 participants are required to run a program.  If program is cancelled due to lack of registrations there will be a refund issued.

L&SCR reserves the right to cancel any program or change class times/dates. Do not wait until the last minute to register, as programs with low registrations may be cancelled.

Winter Cancellation
When school is cancelled, delayed or buses are not running (due to weather or similar reasons) all morning programs are cancelled. If evening programs are cancelled, a notice will be posted on our website homepage and facebook page by 3pm. In the event of a Saturday storm, a decision will be made by 7am and posted on our website home page as well as our facebook page.
