Snow, Inclement Weather and Air Quality Policy

The safety of program participants is a primary consideration when determining if programs should be canceled due to inclement weather, poor or icy road conditions, poor air quality, or other events which jeopardize participant and employee safety. The City of Kirkland follows the lead of the Lake Washington School District when determining cancellations during the school year. Outside of the school year, City staff will evaluate conditions and make the appropriate decision to cancel or delay programs.

When air quality levels are deemed unhealthy by The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) all outdoor classes and programs will be canceled. The Peter Kirk Pool will be closed, and beaches will not be staffed by lifeguards during periods of poor air quality. Classes and programs will be rescheduled if possible. Refunds will be considered on an individual program basis but not guaranteed.

Inclement Weather Hotline: 425-587-3335
