Only the Richmond School District can announce school closures due to the weather. Check here to determine school closures: www.sd38.bc.ca
Please do not phone the school. If the school has a message about the weather, it will be posted on the SLSS Twitter SLSS Twitter
The Richmond School District will attempt to determine school closures due to inclement weather by 7:00 a.m. The District will communicate to parents as soon as possible using a variety of methods including social media, the district website and local A.M. radio stations.
If schools are open, and parents wish to keep children home due to weather conditions, you may do so. Please let your school know of this decision. Parents/guardians are responsible for their child's safe travel to school. If possible, we encourage teenage students to walk to school.
To reach as many people as possible - as quickly as possible - the District will work closely with local media to share information. Listen to local radio stations and follow local news outlets online to also get information about the impact of severe weather or emergencies in our schools. No radio or television announcements will be made saying that schools are open. Only school closures will be announced by the media.
