for MCR Activities
If weather turns for the worse or there is a civil emergency, here's your information guide to Montgomery County Recreation cancellations or postponements.
Inclement Weather Information

Montgomery County Recreation (MCR) holds programs in Department community, senior, aquatic centers, public schools, park facilities, and private facilities. The cancellation of MCR-scheduled programs is generally determined by the Community Use of Public Facilities (CUPF), however, when necessary Recreation may make a separate determination to close facilities and/or cancel programs.


Weekdays and weekends when community activities in schools are closed due to weather conditions, all MCR programs are cancelled, regardless of facility.


Classes and programs will NOT meet when public schools are closed for the holidays.


* On weekdays, when schools are closed all day due to inclement weather or civil emergency, ALL countywide Recreation community center activities, games, practices and classes are cancelled, regardless of location;


* When schools have a delayed opening, Tiny Tots classes that begin prior to noon are cancelled, but all other recreation and community center activities will meet as scheduled;


* On weekends, closures are determined by the Community Use of Public Facilities (CUPF). You may call the Recreation Inclement Weather Line at 240-777-6889, or call CUPF at 240-777-2706. If these facilities are closed, then ALL scheduled Recreation Department activities, games, practices and classes are cancelled;


* In the event that scheduled programs are cancelled, aquatic and community centers may be open for drop-in activities. Please call the facilities directly for information.
