Hello Core Class 2019!

We are carefully watching the weather ahead of tomorrow's Core Class (is it Spring yet?!?!).
Because tomorrow's session will be held at ELANCO, we will follow their lead as to delay and/or cancellation. Please watch WGAL, Lancasteronline, and so on for their status.
In the event that ELANCO delays, plan to report at 10a.
In the event that ELANCO cancels, our session will be rescheduled for the snow makeup date of March 8.

Any delays or cancellations will also be posted to our Facebook page, website, and sent to you via email.

Of course, your safety is of utmost importance to us. If you do not feel comfortable driving tomorrow, please do not attempt to reach us.
If you need to reach us tomorrow (after checking all of the resources listed above), Erin can be reached by texting (607) 761-2269 and I can be reached by texting (717) 371-6762.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience. Now cross your fingers for NO SNOW!
