​Advisory for Cold Weather

During the winter months cold temperatures, wind chill and snow can make getting to and from school challenging.

Our school and other CBE schools rarely close due to snow or cold weather. Assume we are open unless you hear otherwise from us. Information regarding any school closures due to weather will also be posted on the CBE website, on Twitter (@yyCBEdu) and shared with local news media.

During the winter season we remind parents/guardians of the following:

  • Children should be well prepared for the weather and not left unattended at bus stops for any period of time, under any circumstances

  • Families should ensure that they have back-up care arrangements if transportation is delayed. Children should have a warm place to stay before and after school (i.e. with a neighbour or a nearby relative).

  • All CBE schools will remain open to provide a safe, warm and secure environment for students

Blue Day Procedures

During inclement weather (below acceptable temperatures and or extreme wet), students and parents should look for a blueIndoor Day” sign on each of the entrance doors when they arrive at school welcoming students directly into the building.  Students have been asked to come in through their regular “recess entrance doors” at these times and sit quietly in the halls adjacent to their classrooms.  Staff will be on supervision at those times to monitor designated areas.  If students arrive after the bell (9:10 AM), they need to proceed directly to the “front entrance door” and check in the office for a late slip or be directed to their classroom.
