Will schools close?
All schools in the North Vancouver School District will remain OPEN during winter weather, including snowfalls, if possible.
Should weather conditions be extreme or there are power outages throughout the district, a decision will be made by the superintendent's office to close schools. This announcement is made early in the morning and is communicated on the NVSD website and local radio / TV stations. We do not foresee a closure, but it's difficult to predict weather conditions accurately. Student safety is always the number one priority.
How will I know if there is a closure at my school?
School closure information will be posted on the NVSD website and broadcast on local TV and radio stations. School closures will be announced in the morning, usually by 6:30 a.m. Local radio and TV stations that announce school closures are listed at the end of this message.
What do I need to consider as a Parent / Guardian?
Safety at school
Once at school, every effort will be made to clear snow and ice from pathways, playgrounds, and entrances to the school. These areas are regularly salted to prevent slips and falls. We ask students to enjoy the snow but not to throw snowballs on the playground during recess and lunch.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during last Friday's unexpected power outage.
Your cooperation regarding student safety is appreciated.
