​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Inclement Weather Reminders​​​​

During the winter months, inclement weather may cause the disruption of bus transportation and regular school operations. ​ ​​​

Parents/guardians are reminded to review the inclement weather information below for the school year.  In case of poor we​ather, the decision to close schools and/or cancel buses​ is communicated to parents beginning at 6:30 a.m.

It is always a parent’s decision whether to send their child to school on inclement weather days.  Parents who keep their children at home when schools are open, MUST report this absence before the school day starts at: 

  • ​​​​Toll free 1-877-409-6310
  • Online at ​go.schoolmessenger.ca
  • HDSB Mobile App​​​.  Available on the App Store and Google Play, Search for Halton District School Board.

Methods of Communication

Since communication is key in alerting families to the status of school operations and busing, we use a variety of methods to communicate this important information.

Email Notifications on Inclement Weather Days 

The SchoolMessenger System will email the parents of approximately 60,000 students (between 6:30 and 7:30 a.m.).  Delays in email delivery are caused by limitations of parents' Internet Service Provider (ISP) receiving our messages, spam protection, as well as other GTA school boards sending messages that morning. For this reason, School Messenger email is supplementary to social media, website TV and radio.
