With extreme cold temperatures expected in the coming days, we're reminding students and parents to take extra caution as extreme weather can make getting to and from school a challenge. Please take some time to review the following important information with your children and family.
The Holy Spirit Catholic School Division schools are unlikely to close due to snow falls and cold temperatures and will remain open to provide a safe, warm and secure environment for students. It's best to assume schools are open unless you hear differently from your school or a Holy Spirit representative. Information regarding closures due to cold and snowy weather will also be posted on the Holy Spirit Catholic School Division website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and shared with local media.
During the winter months, roadways may become congested and slick resulting in an increase in traffic and bus delays. Bus delays can be caused by increasingly cold and stormy weather. Please use the MyBusStop app or check My School Bus Monitor to find out about any delays. Cold temperatures may also cause unexpected mechanical issues for cars and schools buses. It's best to ensure that students are dressed appropriately for the cold as buses can cool off very quickly.
Children should be well prepared for the weather and clear instructions should be laid out on how long to wait for the bus and what they should do if the bus doesn't arrive. Children should never be left at the bus stop without emergency back-up arrangements.
Back-up care arrangements should be in place if school buses or other means of transportation are delayed. It's important for children to have a warm place to stay both before and after school.
 For any and all questions, feel free to reach out to the Holy Spirit Catholic School Division or Southland Transportation Ltd. Stay safe and warm and have a great week!
