We will be open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. On Wednesdays, we will remain open until 7 p.m. We will be closed Saturday and Sunday. We hope this schedule will allow for more coffee-shop patronage in the morning as well as eliminate evening business-hours overlap with Fourth Form Martial Arts.
We welcome your patronage through September 2023 on Monday through Friday, 10a to 6p, and Saturday, 10a to 2p. These are our minimum-guaranteed hours; we are often open earlier in the morning (sometimes as early as 8:30a) and later in the evening, as the facility schedule dictates. If you stop by and see the red "Open" sign lit, you are welcome to come in regardless of whether we're officially open.
We close for the weather when Wyoming Public Schools closes.
On rare occasions, we close for a few hours mid-day because of coverage gaps. We post these closures on our blog and place a sign in the building's atrium. Presently anticipated dates include:
