NEW Inclement Weather Procedures

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the YCDSB Inclement Weather Procedure must change based on  direction from York Region Public Health.

If buses and other forms of school transportation are cancelled due to inclement weather, all schools will be  closed to students. DO NOT bring your child to school. All students are to remain at home and access  remote learning for the day. Teachers will provide live remote learning for all students through their virtual  classrooms.  Tests, quizzes, as well as, non-virtual parent meetings will be cancelled and rescheduled. 

Before and After School (B&A) Programs will not operate on inclement weather days, if buses are cancelled and schools are closed to in-person learning. 

Child Care Centres will remain open at the discretion of the individual operators. 

How will parents be notified? 

When buses are cancelled due to inclement weather, parents are encouraged to listen for reports on the radio  and television stations listed below. 

Parents will receive an email through School Messenger by 7 am. 

Notifications will be posted on the Board website, all school websites and the Board’s Twitter account (@YCDSB).
