Closure of Schools for Extreme Weather Conditions

December 18, 2012

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 local radio stations CKNW (980), CKWX (1130) and CBC (690) by 7:30 am if possible.

Please do not contact the school or the school board office as the phone systems may become overwhelmed with calls.
