If weather conditions warrant the cancellation of busses or closing of schools, notice will be given over the local radio stations. Inclement weather information is provided early in the morning (7 a.m.) if not earlier.
Notices will also be posted on the WCDSB website – www.wcdsb.ca
Information is also communicated on the Transportation website: www.stswr.ca.
Just a reminder that if buses are cancelled (and the school remains open) they are cancelled ALL day. If a parent chooses to drive their child/children, they are responsible for getting them home as well.
Inclement Weather before the school day:
Supervision by staff on the school yard begins at 8:35 a.m.
When students arrive and there is Inclement Weather (i.e., rain, icy conditions, colder than -20) grades 1-8 enter the school gym at the entrance at the side of the school by the parking lot and are supervised by school staff. Early Years (Kindergarten) students have their normal drop off procedure.
Students enter the gym and line up in their classroom assigned line.
When the bell rings to begin the school day at 8:50 a.m. classroom teachers meet their class in the gym and return to the classroom.
