GUIDELINES FOR EMERGENCY CLOSING OF SCHOOLS DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER
Parents should be aware that during inclement weather, the Durham Board may attempt to keep schools open, but this does not mean that students must be sent to school. It is the parents' responsibility to decide if conditions are safe for their children to walk to and from school. Once the school day has begun, students will normally remain until the school day is over. Should it become necessary to close the school early, the decision will be made before 11:00 a.m. to facilitate afternoon Kindergarten students. When buses are cancelled in the morning they will not run in the afternoon. Listen for radio announcements early in the morning during inclement weather. The following Radio Stations will be the source of information:
CKDO-AM 1350, KX96-FM 95.9, CHUM-FM 104.5, CFRB-AM 1010, CBC/CBL-FM 99.1, MAGICFM 94.9, CHFI-FM 98.1, Q107 107.1, The Mix 99.9.
