Unexpected School Closures
In the event of a school closure during the day (power failure, inclement weather, water problems, or other emergency), we will use the Synrevoice phone system to contact you. For this reason, it is important that parents inform us of any changes in your daytime contact numbers. We also request that if possible, please email your child’s teacher to confirm that you have received the message about the unexpected closure. Our phone lines are very busy during these days and this will allow our phone lines to be kept open so that we can ensure that we make contact with all families about appropriate dismissal. Please listen to our local radio stations for school information or check the school district website at www.nlesd.ca, as decisions for school closures in the morning due to weather are made by the district office, usually no later than 6:30 a.m.

We are a scent-free school, if you are sending in hand sanitizer for your child(ren) to use, please ensure it is non-scented. We will have non-scented hand sanitizer in each room.
We have many students with severe, life-threatening allergies and we must ensure our school is free of:
Nuts (including peanuts, tree nuts and nut products)
Sesame Seeds (including Hummus)
*Please alert your child’s teacher as soon as possible if your child has any serious medical conditions or life threatening allergies. There is also a place for this data on the student data sheet.
We ask that parents refrain from sending in food items which contain any of these products. The district has determined that given the similarities in appearance, texture and taste of Soy Butter products, they are also restricted in our schools where a student has a peanut allergy. Please help keep everyone safe by following this policy.
