Inclement weather policy In case of extreme weather, please exercise caution. PYP's policy is that if Portland Public Schools are canceled, then rehearsal is canceled. If you live in an outlying area, please use your own best judgment when deciding to make the trip or not. You will not be penalized for the decision to stay home from rehearsal if that is what is safest for you. Please call your orchestra manager to report your decision to be absent. For the latest information, please check the PYP recording by calling the office at 503-223-5939.
