Inclement Weather Policy

Throughout the year Atlanta Urban Debate League programming and events may be impacted by inclement weather. The AUDL will only cancel programs and events if the host location cancels programs and events or if traveling to a program or event would pose a severe threat to AUDL staff safety. We will plan on holding events as planned for whomever is able to attend. You should abide by your school district’s or school’s policy on attending a program or event in the case of inclement weather. The AUDL also encourages you to put safety first—please use your best judgement when traveling during weather incidents as different parts of the state are often impacted by weather in different ways.

If your school is unable to attend a program or event when there is a threat of inclement weather, we do ask you please let us know.

If an AUDL program or event is cancelled, we will make the announcement via email to those who are invited to attend the event. We will also put an announcement on the AUDL website if possible. Please disseminate this information to your debaters, coaches, teachers, school administrators, parents, volunteers, and attendees. We want everyone in our community to be safe.
