Inclement Weather Procedures
All students are expected to remain outside until the a.m. and p.m. entry bell, and are expected to go outside for recess. We ask your co-operation in making sure that your child comes dressed suitably for changeable Calgary weather. Please keep in mind that it is often quite cool, particularly in the morning. Boots are a necessity for winter months and for muddy weather. Umbrellas and rain wear are important during the rainy season.
During days where the temperature reaches -20 C with the wind chill, students will be supervised inside the school rather than on the playground. A blue day sign will indicate that they may enter the school right away.
CBE schools do not normally close during blizzard conditions. However, specific school closures do occur because of water main breaks and power outages, and system closures may occur because of wide spread outages and extremely poor road conditions. School buses become unreliable when temperatures dip below -30 C. Closure information is broadcast on radio stations and TV in the morning.
