Visit this webpage and share our messaging on social media to help spread the word about safe driving, cycling and walking in and around SD43's 70 school zones.
The goal is to make school zones safer for everyone including the 32,000 students, 4,300 employees and thousands of parents, visitors and community members who drive, cycle or walk to and by the district’s 70 schools every day.
Visit the district website at www.sd43.bc.ca and watch for messages appearing on our social media channels over the coming week to help spread the word. Together we can make school zones safer!
Please do not drop students off on Baker Drive. We need to be considerate of our community and the homes around the school. Drive ways are being blocked and families are uable to access thier homes. Thank you for your immediate attention to this concern in our community.
Winter Weather Ahead!
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.
The decision on schools remaining open or needing to be closed, because of extreme weather, occurs before 6:30 a.m. so that families can plan and make alternate arrangements.
Any district-wide or partial-district closure will be decided and communicated by 6:30 a.m. via the School District 43 website www.sd43.bc.ca and CKNW AM 980 radio, CKWX 1130 radio and CBC (690) radio.
Extreme weather can also impact transit. Transit schedules may face significant changes or cancellations due to the weather conditions. Parents seeking information on transit schedules need to consult the Translink website: http://www.translink.ca/
We encourage families to continuously check the School District 43 website for updates and changes: www.sd43.bc.ca
