Power outage today

April 06, 2017


Dear North Vancouver School District Community,

At roughly 11:30 a.m. this morning (Thursday, April 6, 2017), the BC Hydro Capilano substation experienced a failure and the following schools lost power: Braemar, Canyon Heights, Carson Graham, Cleveland, Handsworth, Highlands, Larson, Montroyal, Mountainside and Westview. The Education Services Centre also lost power. Carson Graham Secondary and Handsworth Secondary released students early. Mountainside Secondary and all impacted elementary schools remained in session for the day.

By 5:00 p.m., power was restored to all schools. All schools will be open tomorrow (Friday, April 7, 2017). 

Thank you to all of our students, staff and parents for your patience and understanding today.
