If Glencairn P. S. must be closed due to – severe weather, lack of hydro, heat, broken water main etc.

  • There will be an announcement early in the morning on the local radio stations to announce school closures. Listen to CKGL – AM 570, CHYM – FM 96.7 or KOOL – FM 105.3.  You can also check the board website:  www.wrdsb.ca.  PLEASE LISTEN FOR WHETHER THE SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED OR JUST THE BUSES ARE NOT RUNNING.  IF THE BUSES ARE CANCELLED BUT SCHOOLS ARE OPEN THEN BUSSED STUDENTS MAY ATTEND SCHOOL IF THEIR PARENTS DRIVE THEM.
  • Once the school has opened, we will remain open until your child’s regular dismissal time at 3:15 p.m. even if the weather deteriorates.
  • If at anytime the weather causes you concern for your children’s safety, you have the option of keeping them at home or picking them up before their regular dismissal time.
  • Although every effort is made to keep the school open, there may be an emergency which will cause us to close the school mid-day. In that case, we will contact you or an alternate so that you can either pick your child up or give permission for your child to walk home.  For this reason, we request that you make sure that the contact information that we have for you remains up-to-date.
