Inclement Weather

As the weather begins to change, please be reminded that all our students will be expected to be outside before and during school in most weather conditions. Please make sure that your children come to school dressed properly for our invigorating winter days and play outside during recesses. It is advisable for students to bring extra pants and socks. A change is often necessary due to the wet and cold weather of the winter months. 

To avoid adding to our clothing collection in the Lost and Found, please be sure to label all articles of clothing. Boots, jackets, hats, mitts, scarves, snow pants and a warm winter coat will make recess more enjoyable. 

In the event of inclement weather (rain, or a significant wind chill factor), students will be kept inside during all or part of the recess break. The principal will keep a close eye on weather conditions and make decisions based on what is best for the students.

To ensure the safety of students, school bus service may be cancelled from time to time due to inclement weather, extreme temperatures and/or poor road conditions. In these cases, parents and students should develop alternate care/transportation arrangements. 

Parents, students and school staff are asked to access the following radio and television stations after 6:00 a.m. to receive bus cancellation information:
