Closing Schools

In consultation, the Director of Education of the 91pro视频 and the Director of Education of the Halton District School 91pro视频 determine whether to close schools.

NOTE: When schools are closed due to inclement weather, all classes are cancelled. This includes both in-person, and virtual classes (remote learning). Educators in both in-person and virtual learning programs will share asynchronous resources through their digital learning platforms or by other means. No new material will be shared – only review of material that has been previously taught or guidance on ongoing assignments.

In most cases, these decisions are communicated beginning at 6:30 a.m.

Important Reminders

  • When transportation is cancelled, it is cancelled for the entire day. It is at the discretion of the parent or guardian to send their children to school when transportation is cancelled. If they choose to do so, it is then their responsibility to provide transportation to and from school for their child(ren).
  • Due to housing development in north Burlington and Oakville between Hwy 407 and Dundas Street, the boundary area for bus cancellations and school closures has been changed to include the area south of Hwy 407. The area south of Dundas Street (west of Hwy 407) remains unchanged. Please view map for details.鈥
  • Parents need to pay careful attention to the bus cancellation message if their child travels from one zone to another for a specialized program. If your child travels into a zone where the transportation is cancelled, then there will be NO transportation provided for your child that day. Please view map for details.
  • In the event of transportation cancellations or school closures, each school will advise parents and provide instructions when required regarding the cancellation of any unique activities for their respective school communities (for example: secondary exams, parent information evenings, sports events, etc.).
  • Throughout the day, weather conditions will be monitored to determine whether schools will remain open for after school hours and community use of schools activities. If weather conditions worsen, the notice on the 91pro视频鈥檚 public website will be updated, as appropriate, and the media will be advised of any cancellations of after school hours and community use of schools activities through a public service announcement.
  • As always, it is the parent’s or guardian’s responsibility to decide whether or not to send their children to school on inclement weather days.
