Inclement Weather & Safety Concerns at the Maynard COA during Winter Months

With winter weather arriving, here are some safety concerns to be aware of when attending classes and activities at the Council on Aging (COA):

When the Maynard Public Schools close, all on-site COA classes and activities are cancelled. COA staff are available remotely if we are not able to be at the office due to weather-related concerns. If there is a school delay, early morning classes and activities at the COA will be cancelled and all fitness classes will move to the ZOOM platform. In addition, there may be times when the schools are open, but you may receive a “robo-call” from the COA if there are safety issues occurring and classes and activities must be cancelled. Please contact the COA to make sure you are registered in our notification system so you receive a call.

The COA Van Service follows the Maynard Public Schools – if the schools are closed, van service is cancelled. With delays, riders will be notified in advance of changes in the schedule. With any inclement weather, rides may be rescheduled. 

The walkway to the COA has a steep incline before you get to the main stairs. Please use the railings on the right side of the walkway and on both sides of the front steps. Every attempt is made to treat slippery and icy areas but refreeze can quickly happen in certain weather-related conditions. Orange cones will be put out at the front entrance to avoid that area. The walkway facing the golf course’s putting green should never be used to enter the COA in the winter. 

It is a high priority of the Town to keep anyone entering the building safe. Always call the COA if you are not certain the COA is easily accessible, and classes are occurring as scheduled. Please consider taking the COA van. It offers door-to-door service and if you take the van, you will not have to find a place to park on busy days at the COA. We recommend that you utilize a parking space at the top of the lot next to the function hall.
