The CESD policy regarding inclement weather applies to our school. However, our buses do not run when the ambient temperature is –30 C. Our school will remain open for instruction unless directed by the Superintendent of Schools.
Yellow days – We anticipate that the majority of people will be able to drive to Horizon school and that learning will proceed as it normally does. Here is an example of a Yellow day: Days when there is an ambient temperature of -30 degrees temperature or below in the morning, but the weather is relatively fine for the rest of the day. This type of weather may disrupt bus service, but our staff and our parents can often travel safely simply by arriving a little later. For those unable to travel, Google Classrooms remain available so that students who are unable to travel can continue ot have access to learning at home.
Red days – The Superintendent or delegate makes the decision to close schools to ensure the safety of students and staff. School closure days will be communicated the evening prior or early in the morning, before 6:30 a.m. whenever possible, through local radio stations, through Alert Solutions announcements directly to parents, through our Chinook’s Edge website, Facebook and Twitter.
