Woodland’s Hours of Operation: Our barn hours are Mon – Fri., 8 to 8 and Sat. – Sun., 8 to 6. Visitors, students,
and working students should be picked up before the barn closes. Thank you.
Also, there are times when Woodland will cancel lessons because of other activities, major holidays and
inclement weather. Lessons are always cancelled when Montgomery County Snow Emergency Plan is in effect.
For those times, students will call the Center (301-421-9156) to schedule a make-up lesson in a different class,
but appropriate-level class. Instructors will help students pick a make-up class. Students MAY NOT credit
missed lessons towards their next bill. Thank you.
PLEASE NOTE…Children are not to be dropped at Woodland off unless they are attending a lesson or are a
working student or in camp. Children must be picked up within ½ hour of the end of a lesson.

of classes due to extreme conditions. Up to the minute announcements are found on facebook as well!
