Inclement Weather Policy
The National Pike District follows the Howard County Public School System policy for cancellations due to inclement weather.  When HCPSS cancels after-school or evening events, the district's activities - including Roundtables and the OA Chapter Meeting - are also cancelled for that afternoon and/or evening.  The safety of our Scouts and Scouters is our primary concern.
