Inclement Weather Information

With a cold weather forecast ahead, we wanted to remind families that we will make every attempt to keep our school open; however, normal school activities may need to be adjusted if all staff cannot travel safely to work.

Safety is our priority and I ask that parents use extreme caution and if it is deemed that a child cannot travel safely to school, that advance alternate arrangements be made for their child. Student absences due to unsafe travel to school during inclement weather conditions will be excused.

Once again, in rare instances where a school closure is warranted, the decision will be made by 6:30 a.m. at the latest and will be announced over the radio stations

CKNW AM 980 and CKWX AM 1130.
