On days of inclement weather (extreme cold or rain downpour) we have special provisions to ensure the safety and comfort of students. We call these Blue Days. Environment Canada is the source of our weather information and direct observation will be the source of rainy day decisions. When temperatures of –20C or below (including wind chill) are reported, we will declare a Blue Day, and signs will be posted on student doors stating, “Today is a blue day”. In the morning, children in Kindergarten to Grade 3 must come into the school via their regular doors on these days, and remain seated in their classroom hallway, where staff will supervise them.
Parents can assist us by:
- Reminding children that they must come inside when the Blue Day sign is displayed.
- Ensuring children are not arriving at school prior to the 15 minute supervision bell at 8:55 AM.
- For students in Kindergarten who attend an afternoon class, parents and students are to come in through the front doors and remain in the Grand Hall until the final bell rings and a staff member escorts the Kindergarten children to their classes.
