Inclement Weather Policy

Approved in Monthly Meeting: first month, fifth day, 2020


During the week, South Fork Friends would follow the Chatham County Schools decisions regarding extreme weather conditions for after school events.


On weekends, decisions would be made with consultation between the pastor, clerk of Monthly Meeting, and the clerk of Ministry and Counsel.

Factors that will determine decisions:

  • Presence of ice on the church property: sidewalks, parking lot, or steps
  • Roads that would be difficult to travel, or prove hazardous to drivers
  • Inability to provide facilities that are properly heated or bathrooms that are not in working order.


Decisions would be made at least two hours prior to the designated event.


Decisions to cancel would be communicated via One Call Now, Email, and the South Fork page on Facebook.


If it is a worship service that is canceled, a devotional activity or practice will be posted on the church website, facebook page, and communicated via email to encourage families to worship together in lieu of the gathered worship service.
