Tuesday November 21st Announcements


Thank you to all those involved in the CBC Music Video (guitar club, choir and extras!). Recording is done and all remainder practices are CANCELLED

After the success of our food drive we are back at it again.  Personal items are being collected to donate to our local food  bank.  Each grade level is responsible for a specific item.  Lets make this even bigger than the last event.

Yearbooks are still on sale

School Closures

If conditions deteriorate throughout the day, the Superintendent may close schools early when weather or road conditions are considered to be a threat to the safety of students. In the event of an early school closure, the announcement will be made by 11 am. School busses will be dispatched to schools two hours earlier than their normal regularly scheduled pick-up for the afternoon dismissal, walking students will be dismissed at the start of their regular lunch time.


On school days when weather conditions exist that it is not safe to open schools at the regularly scheduled time, but it is predicted that conditions will improve, a 2 hour delayed opening may be considered. Delayed openings would be considered when a severe weather event has concluded but snow clearing or other operations require additional time. Delayed opening may also be considered when the physical plant is experiencing an issue (power, water) and additional time is required to prepare the facility for opening.
In the event of a delayed opening the following will apply:
School opening will be delayed 2 hours
School bus pick up times will be delayed 2 hours
Excel child care will be cancelled for the morning only
Pre-Primary opening will be delayed 2 hours
Each school will alter morning schedules to best address their timetables.
