Snow/Severe Weather

In the event that UWM classes are canceled for any portion of the day due to a snow/severe weather emergency or other emergency by or before 8:00 a.m., we will be closed for the entire day. Families will be notified by email by 8:00 a.m. if the Center closes due to weather or other emergency. An email will be sent to both parents/guardians (providing they have a current email on file in our database). Official announcement of cancellation of UWM classes will be made on area television and radio stations. No separate announcement will be made regarding the Center. You can also obtain information regarding class cancellations by going to UWM’s homepage at

If University classes are canceled after 8:00 a.m., the Center will remain open. If the University cancels classes and its administrative offices are closed (even if it’s after 8:00 a.m.), the Center will close and parents will be contacted by phone to pick up their children. Credit for 50% of charges will be issued to anyone enrolled on a day in which the Children’s Learning Center is closed due to snow, severe weather, or other emergency.

When MPS/Shorewood close for snow/severe weather emergencies, and the Center remains open, after-school rooms will open at 9:00 a.m. Call the Center as early as possible to request care. Extra Half-Day rates apply. These days are not included in the Part-Time/Full-Year School-Age Plan.

All Center closures will be posted on our website at
