Schools are Open!
Schools are open!
From the district snow policy:
During snow events it is common for police and other authorities to advise citizens to avoid unnecessary travel. These advisories do not constitute direction to close public facilities and should not be interpreted as implying school closure.
Staff, students and parents should assume that schools will be open every day during the school year. During a snow event, or other weather event, there will be no public announcement that schools are open. Only closures will be announced.
Should it become necessary to close schools, that decision will be made as early as possible - no later than 6:00 a.m. - and announced via the following media outlets:CKNW AM 980 radio, News AM 1130 radio, CBC AM 690 radio, Fairchild AM 1470 radio, CHQM FM 103.5 radio, CBC television, BCTV, City TV and CTV BC.
In addition, a scrolling notice will be placed on the district web site and a voice message on the district switchboard (604-668-6000).
