Inclement Weather Policy

To ensure the safety of our members, their families, & club staff, we will follow the local school district's decision to close during the weather-related emergencies. Please look for the most up-to-date information on inclement weather-related club closings on our website at www.openthebluedoor.org

In the event the weather deteriorates during the school day, and students are released early, the club will NOT be open.

In the event that inclement weather conditions are expected to occur during normal club hours, then the club will be closed. Parents will be contacted and expected to pick up children within an hour of being called. Additionally, the club will post an announcement on our Facebook page and website.

If school are delayed and open later in day, the club will be open for our regularly scheduled after school program hours.

Questions? Parents can call the club at 540-949-4516 to determine whether programs will be operating.

Anti-Bullying Policy

The Boys and Girls Club of Waynesboro, Staunton, and Augusta County is committed to providing all members with a safe and civil environment, and will not tolerate any form of bullying at any Club activity on or off Club property.

Bullying shall mean any written, electronic, verbal, physical or social act that willfully harms another. Aggravated bullying shall mean willful harm motivated by race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental disability, physical disability, appearance, or socioeconomic status.

Staff and volunteers who observe an act of bullying are expected to take immediate, appropriate steps to intervene. If the staff member or volunteer believes his/her intervention has not resolved the matter, they shall report it to his/her supervisor and document the incident in writing. The Club Director or appropriate staff member will inform the parent or guardian of any member who was observed as a victim or perpetrator of bullying if the issue has not been appropriately resolved. Depending on the frequency and severity of the conduct, intervention, counseling, correction, discipline, and/or referral to law enforcement will be used to remedy the impact on the victim and change the perpetrator's behavior.
