Schools Closed Monday June 28th


June 27, 2021
We have been closely monitoring the weather reports and are concerned about the extremely high temperatures forecast for tomorrow, Monday, June 28. Many of our elementary schools do not have air conditioning that is sufficient to keep classrooms cool in those circumstances.

Out of an abundance of caution, we are closing schools to students on Monday, June 28, for the entire School District.  The district recognizes the impact and stress this district-wide closure will have on our families, and we apologize for any inconvenience this closure creates. However, the health and safety of our students, staff, and school community is our priority.

Please continue to check your school or District website for updates on Monday with respect to school status on Tuesday.

Staff will be reporting to work as usual and will be available to support students and parents. We will also be monitoring temperatures in schools and district sites, and staff may be required to relocate depending on local conditions.

To help families further, here is additional information from the BC Centre for Disease Control regarding warm weather safety in a time of COVID-19 here.

Thank you for your cooperation and support.
