Inclement Weather Arrangements
In the event of inclement weather conditions Tinytots will monitor weather conditions through the Hong Kong Observatory. For details of how our classes will operate in such conditions please see below.
For the safety of our students we may need to cancel classes from time to time. If a class is cancelled we will send an SMS as soon as possible to parents/guardians to allow them sufficient time to make alternative arrangements where necessary. Please note we are limited to the forecast of the observatory and can only give as much warning as is provided by them. Further, cancellation will also depend on the venue for example classes held at OUTDOOR venues may be cancelled in lesser weather conditions than INDOOR venues. In the event of a cancellation we offer make up classes within the same term but no refunds will be given. Please note the following general weather warnings:-
Classes will only be cancelled if pollution levels are particularly severe. If your child has a respiratory illness, breathing difficulties and/or suffers from conditions such as asthma we would advise that he/she does not attend or that he/she has his/her inhaler or other appropriate prescribed medication on hand.
As advised by the observatory “the Amber Rain Signal gives alert about potential heavy rain that may develop into Red or Black signal situations”. In light of the aforesaid the venue at which your child’s class will be held may not be affected. Therefore classes will run as normal unless we advise otherwise.
This signal warns of heavy rain however the venue at which your child’s class will be held may not be affected. Classes particularly those held indoors will likely run as normal but we will advise if they will be cancelled.
In the event of a Black Rain Signal all lessons will be cancelled. Should the signal be lowered we will advise whether classes later in the day will continue as scheduled. In this case please wait for our advice.
Depending on the severity of a thunderstorm OUTDOOR classes may be cancelled. Should the observatory forecast a large storm heading towards a venue we will consider cancelling a class in advance.
All classes will continue as normal. Our coaches will of course allow for extra water breaks to ensure your child is well hydrated. We would also recommend your child wear a hat and sunblock in such conditions.
All classes will continue as normal. Please ensure your child comes to class in warm clothing (this does not have to be part of the of the Tinytots uniform).
Indoor classes will go ahead unless we advise otherwise. Outdoor classes will normally go ahead but we will inform you if cancellation is required.
Classes may go ahead depending on whether conditions are expected to worsen. Certain venue facilities may be closed however and hence we would ask that you please wait for us to confirm if classes will go ahead.
All classes will be cancelled. Should the signal be lowered later in the day please wait for us to confirm if classes will go ahead.
