Inclement Weather Policy

Weather Related Text Alerts or Emails

In the interest of safety, we may decide to close the building or have a delayed opening or early closing time due to poor weather conditions. In addition to learning about these last minute closings or delays on our home page you can also sign up to receive an email or text alert message.

Sign up for our emails notifying you of JCC delays or closings 

If you can't always access email you might prefer our free text alerts.  

To sign up for our Text Alerts, type 292929 in the place where you would put someone's number if you wanted to text them on your cell phone. In the area where you would type a message, just write jccbalt.alert with the period (caps or no caps – no difference).

If your attempt to sign-up is successful, you will get a confirmation message to which you need not reply.
