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

The Calgary weather forecast that appears on our website is provided by Environment Canada through one of its two Calgary weather stations, and is not school specific.
The CBE has standardized the weather to use Environment Canada to create continuity for parents, employees and schools. We know that temperatures can fluctuate around our city and we want to ensure that we are all accessing and viewing the same information.
Guidelines are provided for students and cold weather, but if circumstances change, the principal has the final decision.
Please ensure children are addressed appropriately. For cold weather, children should be dressed to go outside during the lunch period. All students benefit from having a hat, mitts, scarf, snow pants, boots and a warm jacket.
