Students need the opportunity to go outside for fresh air and play during recess and lunchtime at school. They will need to have appropriate rainy/cold weather clothes. Most days students will go outside, even on wet/cold days, so it is important that they are dressed for the winter weather. Rain boots, a waterproof coat and an umbrella will make your child much more comfortable both when they are outside and when they come back in (warm and dry).
We occasionally call for an inside day (for quiet activities or games), but students are still given the choice of going outside. With the weather being so unpredictable here in North Vancouver, your children should always be prepared for wet and blustery weather at any time of the year.
On the rare occasion that we experience extreme weather events (Heavy Snow, Extreme heat) information will be communicated to parents by 6.30am about school closures and more details can be found here. Extreme Weather Events
