Inclement Weather/School Closure Info

Information regarding our policies for weather related and emergency school closures.

 

 

Decisions to close school because of inclement weather or other emergencies will be announced on radio stations, CBC Radio, CHFM Lite 96, 66 CFR, JACK FM, QR 77, Q 107, Country 105, CKMX 1060, CJAY 92 as well as CITY TV, The Air 106 (Airdrie) and Global News Morning Edition.

 

This information will also be posted on the Rocky View Schools’ website and will be available by telephoning the RVS Transportation information line 403.250.0016. Please note, that it is through these mechanisms only that announcements regarding closure will be made. As well, it is important to remember it is the responsibility of the parent(s) to determine whether or not it is safe for their childern to leave for school under severe weather conditions.

In terms of having indoor recess (K-6) when the weather is very cold outside, we will keep all K-6 students inside when the temperature outside combined with windchill is colder than -22 degrees Celsius. We will be using the Weather Network's Beiseker page to determine the temperature. Either way, it is imperative that all students come to school dressed appropriately for whatever conditions the weather is presenting. We do not normally have an indoor recess due to rain, so students should be prepared to spend time outdoors everyday, rain or shine.
