As winter weather approaches, we want to remind parents/guardians, students, and staff about Burnaby School District weather related school closure announcements. All schools will remain OPEN, unless there is heavy snowfall, damage or other circumstances (eg. power outage) that make it impossible to operate safely. The district will do its best to communicate school or district-wide closures or cancellations by 6:30 am. This information will be posted on the front page of the district website and tweeted out (follow us on Twitter @burnabyschools). However, please keep in mind that there may be situations where this is not always possible, for example, power outages or technical problems. The most reliable way to learn of school closures is to listen for updates on the following radio stations: CBC AM 690, CBC Radio One FM 88.1, CKWX AM 1130 – NEWS 1130 AM, CKNW AM 980, Fairchild AM 1470, Fairchild FM 96.1. Please do not call the radio station – simply tune in and listen for the announcements which will be made on a regular basis.
