Weekly Facts Blog – January 26, 2009
GTAR/NORES Inclement Weather Policy
We are in that time of year when the weather does not always work in our favor; therefore, GTAR/NORES has established the following inclement weather policy for all education classes at GTAR (CE, Computer, New Member Orientation, Post Licensing, etc.): If Tulsa Public Schools are closed the day of a scheduled class, the GTAR/NORES class is cancelled. Depending on the type of class being cancelled, the class will either be rescheduled for a future date or a full refund will be issued. Please be sure to check one of the local news channels the night before and/or morning of a scheduled class for school closings. (Note: This policy does NOT apply to the upcoming RCA Banquet or the Presidents’ Inaugural Banquet; these events will happen regardless of the weather – no refunds will be given.)
