It is a priority for the Greater Victoria School District to communicate effectively to parents, students and community partners during inclement weather. With snow in our forecast for this upcoming week, the District would like to remind families of its inclement weather protocol and where to find information about the determination of school closures.
The District assesses weather conditions on a daily basis and puts every effort into making a determination by 6:30 a.m. of whether or not schools will remain open. The status of schools and transportation is then provided to local media and communicated to our community.
Inclement Weather Updates are provided through the following:
- School District website (www.sd61.bc.ca)
- Social Media Channels
- Local Media Outlets
The District is regularly monitoring local weather conditions and Environment Canada’s forecast, and will continue to do so over the weekend. Please stay connected with us for regular updates.
The Greater Victoria Region is broad and we understand that some areas may be more difficult to travel than others. It’s always a parent’s decision if you choose to keep your child home due to road conditions.
