Troop Weather Policy

Troop 33 follows the Guide to Safe Scouting and the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) closure policy during inclement weather. MCPS status is reported on TV and radio stations, as well as the MCPS home page (http://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org).
  • If MCPS is closed all day for inclement weather, all troop and/or patrol activities are cancelled.
  • If MCPS cancels all afternoon and/or evening programs, all troop and/or patrol activities are cancelled.

Scouts, scouters, and parents who can make it safely are encouraged to respond if TPPC asks for Troop assistance in clearing snow and/or ice from sidewalks and walkways.

For Patrol weekend activities/outings, the Patrol Advisor in charge of the activity/outing (in consultation with the Troop Leadership) is responsible for deciding whether or not to cancel the activities based on the safety of the scouts.

For Troop weekend activities/outings, the Scoutmaster, in consultation with the other troop leaders, is responsible for deciding whether or not to cancel the activities based on the safety of the scouts.

Troop 33 follows the Guide to Safe Scouting.

Adopted by the Troop Committee on December 3, 2015.
