including snowfalls. Any district-wide closure will be decided by 6:30

also send parents a message via Sangha and staff will receive
notification via email.

The North Vancouver School District will use Sangha
to contact parents/guardians in the event of an Emergency Release of
students during the school day. Individual school closures or delayed
start due to unique circumstances (e.g., power outages) will be
announced as early as possible through Sangha and the school's website.
safety is our first priority and a shared responsibility.
Parents/guardians are responsible for their child's safe travel to
school. If for any reason a parent/guardian feels that a child cannot
travel safely to school, they should make other arrangements for their
child. Students will not be penalized for absences due to severe weather
conditions. The decision to attend school is the responsibility of each
encouraged to establish an emergency plan for their children in the
event that schools are closed, the school's start time is delayed, or
students are dismissed early. This is a reminder that all students need
to dress warmly and appropriately for winter weather conditions.
this time, we encourage you to review your own preparations for winter
weather and ensure that you are familiar with your municipality's snow
and ice response procedures. We request that you strictly adhere to
parking restrictions in and around all North Vancouver schools. Your
child's school will contact you about any changes to driving routes that
may be put into effect on streets adjacent to the school.
your cooperation and adherence to winter weather procedures, we can
help achieve safe conditions for students travelling to and from school.
Please put safety first.
