Inclement weather

After much discussion, the Division has reopened AP 131 – School Operation During Inclement Weather and has revised it regarding the ambient air temperature as it pertains to transporting students.

The administrative procedure will now stipulate that buses within the region will not operate in temperatures colder than -35 C. (excluding wind chill).

The Trustees participated in video conferencing presentations from Grade 10 students from the Altario, Berry Creek and Youngstown (ABY) campus schools.

Students made presentations on their small businesses that were a result of the enterprise and innovation classes which they were enrolled in.
