Parent Information

 Winter Weather Closures

As winter weather approaches, we want to remind parents/guardians, students, and staff about Burnaby School District weather related school closure announcements.

All schools will remain OPEN, unless there is heavy snowfall, damage, or other circumstances (e.g. power outage) that make it impossible to operate safely.  The district will do its best to communicate school or district-wide closures and bus cancellations by 6:30 am.  This information will be posted on the front page of the district website.  Closure information will also be provided by the media (radio and tv stations).  PLEASE NOTE THAT NO ANNOUNCEMENT WILL BE MADE THAT SCHOOLS ARE OPEN.

Parents/guardians are responsible for their child’s safe travel to school.  Please walk elementary children to the door of their school if you are uncertain whether the school is open or not.  If for any reason you feel that your child cannot travel safely to school then you should notify the school that your child will be absent.

Student safety is a shared responsibility.  With your cooperation and support related to winter procedures, we can achieve safe conditions for all.
