Severe Weather and Unscheduled School Closures
Decisions about school schedules and bus route changes are almost always made in the early morning before school. This allows for the most current weather information to factor into the decision. This information is communicated immediately, generally before 6:15 AM. For more information about the district's procedure on unscheduled school closures.
Updated information and changes will be posted on the homepage of the School District website. In addition, notifications will be pushed to any schools affected by a closure or bus cancellation.

We understand these decisions have an impact on our families and appreciate your patience during these severe weather situations. While we know that our students and families are best served when we are open, our top concern is the safety of our students and staff.
Staff do their utmost to maintain the conditions of our parking lots and walkways during inclement weather, however, please use caution as these areas may be slippery.
The final decision to send students to school resides with parents since they know the road and weather conditions in their respective areas. Parents/guardians should be reminded to dress their children warmly during inclement weather conditions as schools are sometimes cooler than normal.
Any questions should be directed to the Board of Education Office at 604-826-6286.
