Snow Closures Due to Inclement Weather

The district will try to determine school closures due to inclement weather by 6:30 a.m. Updates will be delivered using social media and school and district websites.



No radio or television announcement will be made saying that schools are open. Only school closures will be announced by the media. To reach as many people as possible - as quickly as possible - we work closely with our local media to share information. Listen to local radio stations (CKNW AM 980, News AM 1130, CBC AM 690, Fairchild AM 1470, CHQM FM 103.5) and follow local news outlets online to also get information about the impact of severe weather or emergencies in Richmond schools.

If snowfall begins while school is in session, in most circumstances, schools will remain OPEN until the end of the school day.

If schools are open, and you wish to keep your child home due to weather conditions, you may do so. Please let the school office know of this decision by leaving an early warning message at 604-668-6269 Press 1. Please mention your child's full name, grade and division, reason and length of absence.

Parents/guardians are responsible for their child's safe travel to school. If possible, we encourage parents to walk their children to school in poor weather conditions.
