The Director of Education or designate, in consultation with the Supervisor of Transportation shall cancel some/all bus routes and/or close the school(s) when the weather dictates as per school division policies and procedures.
Buses may be cancelled in certain areas or the entire division pending consideration of the following factors:
- wind chill, visibility (storm/blizzard conditions)
- road conditions, time of year (amount of daylight)
- hours, forecast for the day, input from drivers.
The decision to cancel buses must be made by 6:30 a.m. and will be announced on local radio stations. Bus cancellation does not mean school classes are cancelled.
School buses will never run early for the afternoon run. They will operate at normal times or not at all.
It is important to note that bus cancellation does not automatically mean that schools have been closed. Stay tuned to the radio and websites for the most up to date notifications!
The closure of school in the event of weather would be communicated via radio and websites as soon as such a decision has been made. Please note that the closure of school in its entirety due to weather conditions is a very rare occurrence.
