The emergency closing of a school is a rare occurrence. However, circumstances such a heavy snowfall or a power failure, can demand that such a decision be made. In this event, the following will occur:

• Local radio stations such as CFAX 1070 or Q100 will be provided with details about the closure
• If the school maintains power a bulletin will be posted on
• If students are at school they may be permitted to go home with an adult as long as their Emergency Contact Forms indicate that they may. It is always wise to list at least three contacts perhaps one being a neighbour.
• Individual arrangements will be made for students with special needs.
