SEVERE WEATHER PROCEDURES
The City of Toronto at times issues extreme weather alerts. Although we do not anticipate ferry closures or bus cancellations, there is always a possibility that this could happen. Due to our unique location and the fact that our school can only be accessed by buses, Gibraltar Point Day Nursery and Island Public School operates under special guidelines. In the event that weather conditions and unplowed roads prevent bus transportation of students the following contingency plan will be put in place:
A message will be posted on the HiMam app indicating bus cancellation, possible relocation and/or school closure.
An email will also be sent via the Principal to indicate whether the buses to the school have been cancelled and possible relocation and/ior school closure.
A notice will also be issued via text and phone tree to indicate whether the buses to the school have been cancelled and possible relocation and/ior school closure updated information.
Please check any of these sources, as well as any of the news channels to find out what’s happening if we have a snow storm.
