In the event of a board-wide school closure, please note that distance learning and our virtual hub will also be closed for the day. School closures for inclement weather or bad road conditions are postponed school days. A conditional pedagogical day will then be replaced by a regular school day.


The following stations are used to advise parents of school closures. Every attempt is made to provide information to radio stations as early as possible so that parents can make alternate arrangements for childcare in the case of a school closure. Schools that have emergency telephone chains in place, will also activate them as soon as possible in case of emergency.
