Inclement Weather Policy
Some reports state that Wilmington has gone some 700+ days without significant snowfall. As statistics are prone to do, it will remain until it changes. Immanuel Highlands does not have an inclement weather policy (yet), so here’s what will happen as we develop one through official channels.
Sunday services will be held as scheduled unless roads are closed and it is declared that only emergency vehicles can travel. If Wilmington declares a snow emergency, we will follow those directions, given that we require street parking. So, if we can’t park on the streets by the church building, services will be canceled.
We will follow the public school announcements for weekday meetings, rehearsals, and services. If the public schools cancel due to weather, then our schedule for that day is canceled as well. We can quickly set up Zoom meetings when needed.
Vestry will discuss this at its next meeting, and Property will discuss the clearing of sidewalks and steps. What we really rely on, however, is everyone choosing safety, and if the weather just looks too bad to be out and about, stay home and safe. We’ll meet again at the next appointed date and time.
