School Cancellation Process

In the event that school must be canceled due to poor weather, the cancellation will be announced on the local radio station (CKDH FM – 101.7) between the hours of 6:00 and 8:00 A.M. You can also check the regional website ( and the CCRCE Facebook and Twitter pages for school closure information. There is also a link on the CCRCE website that allows you to subscribe to school closure text alerts.

If schools have to close unexpectedly during the day for any reason, school staff will call individual homes to inform parents/guardians that their child(ren) will be dismissed early. If there is a planned early closure, schools are not required to call individual parents/guardians. Instead an SchoolMessenger message will be sent out and schools affected by the early dismissal will be identified on the CCRCE website and communicated through the media.

It is important that you have an appropriate back-up plan in place for your child in case school is dismissed during the day. Please be sure your child’s teacher is aware of the plan.  *If your address, phone number or emergency contact information changes at any point during the year, please be sure to let your child’s teacher and the office know.

*Please note that school principals do not make decisions regarding school closures.
