Please listen to Radio Station CKPC ( 1380 AM and 92.1 FM, 1150 CKOC) or CH TV for information on school closures. Please do NOT call the school.
In the event that inclement weather occurs during the school day after the children have arrived at school, The Grand Erie District School Board will make a decision to either close schools or remain open by 12:00 noon. Please listen to Radio Station CKPC or check the Transportation websites for any such announcements. Again, please do NOT call the school for this information. In the event of a mid-day closure, the school telephone lines will be needed to work through our Emergency Phone Fan-Out to contact parents. Parents should note that it is very rare that the school will be closed half way through an instructional day. Again, please ensure that the school has up to date and correct information from parents as to where to send children in the event of an early school closure.This is a parent responsibility to ensure that we have this information.
TO SEE IF BUSSES ARE CANCELLED DUE TO BAD WEATHER or FOG DELAY- YOU CAN GO DIRECTLY TO THE TRANSPORTATION WEBSITE FROM THE SCHOOL WEBSITE or the GEDSB WEBSITE (under the Parents tab). CLICK ON HOME TAB AND THEN TRANSPORTATION TAB AND LOOK FOR ZONE 3 & 4. PLEASE ALSO CHECK THE BUS DELAY ICON TO SEE IF THERE IS ANY BUS CANCELLATIONS LISTED THERE. You will need to know your child’s bus route number### to see if their route has been cancelled. http://www.stsbhn.org/ www.stsbhn.ca click cancellations – closures and Bus Delay icons.
