The Springfield-Greene County Park Board will host its SPARC Snow Day Program from 7 a.m. – 6 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 27, at the Oak Grove Community Center, 1538 S. Oak Grove Ave., in response to the cancellation of many schools throughout the area, due to the inclement winter weather.

The Snow Day Program is open to any K-5 students, and includes scheduled games, arts and crafts, afternoon snack, movies, and indoor fun. Children must bring a sack lunch. The day-long program is $12 per child.

Registration runs from 7 – 9 a.m., at the Oak Grove Community Center, or until the program is full. The program is limited to the first 60 registrations per day. The Oak Grove Community Center phone number is 417-891-1635.
