The weather forecast today is for a blast of snow this evening and early tomorrow. This is a good time to remind everyone about our “Inclement Weather” procedures.
During periods of severe weather your best sources of information about possible school closing and/or school bus cancellations is the School Board’s Website www.wcdsb.ca, the transportation services of Waterloo or a local radio station. For up-to-date information on school bus delays, cancellations and school closures, you can visit the Student Transportation Services of Waterloo Region website (www.stswr.ca). The following radio stations will provide information beginning at 7:00 a.m. Please do not call the school.
CHYM FM 96.7 – Kitchener / Waterloo
|CKKW AM 109 – Kitchener / Waterloo||CJOY AM 1460 – Guelph|
It is important to remember that when transportation is cancelled in the morning it is cancelled all day. If you elect to personally drive your child(ren) to school, getting the child(ren) home is also your responsibility. Even if conditions improve, buses will not resume operation.
When transportation is cancelled, the school may remain open to students who can safely walk to school. It is the responsibility of the parents to determine whether it is safe to come to school or not. If you choose to keep your child(ren) at home because of safety, please call the school 519-621-5211, to inform us of your decision.
The emergency inclement weather information requested by the school and provided by the parents will be followed for each child. Parents are requested to also ensure that students know what to do on these days as you have indicated on the original form; and to make sure the school has updated emergency information.
It looks like it is going to be a white Christmas!
