Inclement Weather Policy

Newmarket Community Center General Inclement Weather Policy

In an effort to ensure the safety of our participants and staff, the Newmarket Recreation Department has adopted the following guideline for inclement weather.


If for public safety the Town Administrator has CLOSED the Town of Newmarket for the day due to a weather related issue, the Recreation Department and the Sunrise Sunset Center will also be closed for ALL programming for the entire day.


If the Newmarket School District cancels school due to a weather issue, the Recreation Department and the Sunrise Sunset Center will also be closed and all DAY programs will be cancelled including afterschool programs.

Road conditions will be evaluated throughout the day and a determination regarding the cancelling of any EVENING classes will be made by 3 PM and posted online.


If the Newmarket School District has a two hour delay there is NO change to our scheduled programs for any class that begins prior to 9:30 AM. Preschool Playgroup will run on its regular scheduled time of 9:30 to 11:30 AM.

Both AM and PM Preschool Sports (with a regular start tome of 8:30AM) will be cancelled for the day with a make-up day scheduled for the end of the session.

Any Adult Yoga program with a scheduled start time of 9 AM will have a delayed start for all School Delayed Opening Days. Any Adult Yoga class scheduled on a Delayed Opening Day will begin at 10 AM.

The Sunrise Sunset Center will cancel all morning programming for any delay opening for the Newmarket School District.  The Center will open at 10 AM on days that the Newmarket School District has delayed school.


In the event that weather conditions deteriorate throughout the day and the School District decides to release students early for their safety, ALL afterschool classes will be cancelled for the day.


The Recreation Department and Sunrise Sunset Center will post any cancellations or delays online at, on WMUR and on Facebook.

School cancellations and delays will be posted on WMUR by the school.
