Inclement Weather Procedures……
At this time of the year we like to take a moment to remind you of our inclement weather procedures. Please give us a call if you have any questions at all.
SCHOOL BUS CANCELLATIONS AND SCHOOL CLOSURES
During the winter season there are days when school buses will not be able to operate because of fog, freezing rain or other adverse road conditions. This may be confined to certain areas or could necessitate a complete system shut-down for that day. If conditions are severe enough, school may also be closed.
Bus operators will consult with their drivers and other monitors to determine road conditions. If conditions appear unsafe, they will contact the Transportation Official for approval to cancel buses.
If there is a decision to cancel, the Transportation Official will contact the radio stations. Bus cancellation and school closure notices affecting our schools will be given out between 6:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. to all local radio stations and media outlets and social media.
Cancellation information is also posted on the Board’s website at www.wcdsb.ca. If possible – we also try to send out an additional NewsWire from the school.
Unless a system closure has been announced, all schools will be open during regular hours. When morning bus routes have been cancelled, buses are cancelled for the day.
If buses are cancelled and parents bring their children and/or other children to school, it is the parents’ responsibility to pick them up at the end of the school day.
Please give us a call here at the school if you have any questions.
Take good care,
St. Anne School Staff
