Reminder: GTAR/NORES Inclement Weather Policy
The GTAR/NORES Inclement Weather policy is for ALL EDUCATION classes at GTAR (CE, Computer, New Member Orientation, etc.), and is as follows: 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. In addition, for those of you who live outside the Tulsa area, if schools in your area are closed the day of class or you are uncomfortable making the drive, you can still receive a refund, but you MUST call or email us that day (day of the class). You cannot just be a “no show” and expect a refund. Please be sure to check one of the local news channels the night before and/or morning of a scheduled class for school closings. Also check tulsarealtors.com; a broadcast notice will be posted as soon as possible.
