Weather & Closures

During emergency situations, schools will be closed to ensure the greatest possible level of safety for students and staff.  Reasons for such closures could include: bomb threats, gas leaks, fire, smoke, power failure, extreme weather situations, earthquakes, and other causes that may endanger students and staff.  The Superintendent is responsible for all decisions relating to school closures.

In the event that inclement weather requires a school closure prior to the school day starting, the District will advise the following media outlets as early as possible before 6:00 a.m. of the details of the closure:

CBC Radio                   690 AM Radio

STAR FM                      98.3 FM Radio

CKNW                          980 AM Radio                          

Country 107                  107.1 FM Radio

News 1130                    1130 AM Radio

The District will phone all student/staff homes via the Synervoice system in the event of school closure. The information will also be available on the voicemail systems at the School Board Office (604-859-4891) and on the School District website at
