Emergency School Closing Procedures

Emergency School Closing Procedures
by Betty Anderson - Wednesday, 23 February 2011, 9:43 AM
In the event of emergency school closure due to heavy snowfall or extended power failure, we remind you:

* Radio stations will be provided with details for immediate broadcast. For up-to-date info please listen on: CFAX (1070 AM); CIOC (The Ocean - 98.5 FM); CKKQ (The Q - 100.3 FM); JACK (103.1 FM); CBC Radio (90.5 FM) and KOOL (107.3 FM).

* If a decision to close is made when school is in session, students will be permitted to leave school only after contact has been made with a parent / guardian or person pre-authorized by a parent / guardian. If contact is not possible school administrators will make appropriate arrangements. An early bus run will be organized if road conditions permit. As necessary, special arrangements will be made for students with special needs.

If a school closure decision becomes necessary, your understanding, tolerance and cooperation will be most appreciated.
