Inclement Weather Procedures
We experienced our first inclement weather day last Tuesday due to freezing rain. There are generally a handful of these throughout the winter months.
Schools remain open when transportation is cancelled. Please listen to local radio stations and check the OTSA and OCDSB websites and twitter feeds to learn if buses are cancelled.
PLEASE NOTE - If you drive your child to school, you must also arrange to pick your child up at the end of the day at 2:30 pm sharp.
If your regular dismissal plans are different from the every day, it is very important that you communicate those plans with your child. If you plan to pick up your child or if someone else is picking them up, please write a note in their communication book or communicate the change with one of your child's educaotrs at drop off.
