Inclement Weather Message

30 Nov

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Tuesday, December 1, 2020. 

This may affect our ability to operate student transportation and open school and board locations to students. As a precaution, please make alternate arrangements for your children in the event a closure is required due to inclement weather. 

As noted in our communication to families last week, this year, when an inclement weather day is declared, school transportation will be cancelled and schools will be closed to students. If an inclement weather day is declared, please do not send your child to school. In previous years, schools have remained open when school transportation is cancelled, however, given the importance of adhering to our health and safety guidelines, schools will be closed to students on inclement weather days. We are unable to guarantee appropriate coverage for students on inclement weather days when school transportation is closed and classes cannot be combined. 

Announcements will be posted as early as possible and no later than 6:00 a.m. Please check the following for updates: 

  • Student Transportation Services website: schoolbuscity.com
  • Student Transportation Hotline: 1-877-330-3001
  • @YRDSB Twitter account
  • Board website (www.yrdsb.ca) and school websites
  • Radio and TV media outlets

Please continue to monitor local media for up to date weather forecasts and take safety precautions advised by local authorities. 

Our priority continues to be the safety of our students, staff members and families.
