Winter Weather Info 2022-2023

​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 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 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: 

We encourage families to continuously check the School District 43 website for updates and changes: Learn more about SD43’s process for emergency and inclement weather status updates at: 

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 famil​y

    Next week is the English Book Fair in the library (a French Book Fair is scheduled for Feb.). I‘m very excited to bring the book fairs back! I will be setting up the displays after school tomorrow (Friday). The book fair will be open each day next week before school (8:30), at lunch (12:15 bell), and after school.  If anyone is interested in helping out with the book fair, I have a just a few times that I am short volunteers right now (Tue and Thu lunch, and set-up tomorrow after school). Also – feel free to come and do some shopping while the book fair is open!


    The library will be closed next week so all library preps and LLC blocks will take place in the Music Rm. There will be no book exchanges next week as well.
