Closure of Schools for Extreme Weather Conditions
In the case of extreme weather conditions such as ice, wind and/or excessive snowfall, the Superintendent of Schools has authority on behalf of the Board, to temporarily close a school.
As a general expectation, parents should assume that schools are open. If parents believe the local conditions are unsafe, they should keep their child at home or arrange his/her early dismissal. If schools are to be closed before morning classes begin, an announcement will be made on radio stations CKNW (980), CKWX (1130) and CBC (690) by 7:30am if possible, and it will be posted on the district website (be sure to hit refresh to get the latest notices).
