In the event of inclement weather, tune in to CKNW AM 980 on the radio for information regarding any school closure. Information can also be found on their web site, www.cknw.com or on our website www.stmichaelschool.ca. In the case of inclement weather in the morning, closures are usually reported every ten to fifteen minutes. The class phoning parents will phone all the families to ensure that everyone is informed of the closure. Please do not tie up the school and parish telephone lines by trying to call these offices. The radio station WILL NOT announce if the school is open; therefore, if you DO NOT hear the name of the school then the school is open. Likewise, if you do not receive a call from your class phoning parent then the school is open. All calls will be made by 8:00 am. As traveling conditions vary depending on where you live, please use your own judgment regarding sending your child to school. The staff, however, will always work to keep the school open when safety is not in question. Also, please remind your child/ren to wear clothing appropriate for the weather, (i.e. boots, warm jacket, mitts, toques). If weather conditions are reasonable, students will go outside to get some fresh air during recess and lunch breaks.
