School Closure Due to Inclement Weather

While the first day of winter is still a few weeks away, the early snowfall has given us pause to plan early for inclement weather and potential bus cancellations. As student safety and well-being is always our priority and given the unique and additional challenges that Covid19 presents (such as implementing cohorts) there are important changes to our process when student transportation has been cancelled. For the 2020-2021 school year in the circumstance when transportation is cancelled due to weather and road conditions, all schools will be closed to both students and staff.

As each classroom teacher has established a Google Classroom or D2L site it is expected that all teaching staff will utilize their LMS (Learning Management System) to contact students and post work by 10am on the closure day. Planning- time and French teachers should collaborate with the classroom teacher to post work in their subject areas. Teachers must provide, in advance of such a day, an expectation for student login and resources necessary to provide asynchronous student work.

Lastly, teachers must observe normal bell times and be available to students on the closure day either through the LMS or through other appropriate means, such as email.
