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.
