Extreme Weather Closure Information
Schools are not routinely closed due to snow or other inclement weather conditions. All schools in School District 43 (Coquitlam) will remain OPEN, if at all possible, during winter weather, including snowfall.
However, on occasion, a district-wide or partial-district closure is required due to extreme weather. Partial-district closures affecting individual schools may occur due to the very different geography within our school district. If there is a partial-district closure affected schools will be identified.
While the District tries to make the best decision with the information available, the
weather does change quickly. Therefore, when schools remain open, decisions to stay
at home during challenging weather conditions should be made by each family.
The SD43 website homepage is the official primary source of SD43 information during an emergency, inclement weather, power outage or similar incident.
