All schools in the North Vancouver School District will remain OPEN, if at all possible during winter weather, including snowfalls. Any district wide closure will be decided by 6:30 a.m. at the latest. School closure information will be provided to the following radio and television stations:
CBC 690 AM radio
CKNW 980 AM radio
NEWS 1130 AM radio
CFOX 99.9 FM radio
AM 730 radio
Individual school closures due to unique circumstances (e.g. power outages) will be announced as early as possible in the same manner. No announcement will be made saying that schools are open. Only closures will be announced.
In the event of a district wide closure, notice will be posted on our School District website. The Sutherland website will be updated when possible.
Parents are encouraged to establish an emergency plan for their children in the event that schools are closed, start late, or dismiss early. Please prepare for inclement weather by dressing children appropriately. Reminders to stay a safe distance from the road and vehicle traffic are important for pedestrians.
