Winter Weather Procedures

With winter weather here, we want to remind you about how the Burnaby School District shares weather-related school closures.

All schools will remain OPEN, unless there is heavy snowfall, damage or other circumstances – such as a power outage – that make it impossible to operate safely. The District will do its best to communicate school or district-wide closures by 6:30 am. This information will be posted on the front page of the district website However, please keep in mind that there may be situations where this is not possible – again, such as a power outage.

Here is a link to the Burnaby School District Website.

Another way to learn about school closures is on local radio and TV stations, some of which are:

CBC AM 690 radio Global TV News AM 1130 radio CBC TV CKNW AM 980 radio CityNews Fairchild AM 1470 radio CTV BC

Our priority is always the safety of students and staff; student safety is a responsibility we share with families.
