Winter Related School Closures

The latest white fluff in the air last night is reminding us that winter is on its way! That means it is time to remind you of how you might learn of any weather related school closures.


All schools will remain OPEN, unless there is heavy snowfall, damage or other circumstances (e.g. power outage) that make it impossible to operate safely. In the event there are certain schools or the entire district closed due to snow, or any other weather-related issues, announcements will be made on local radio stations by 7 a.m. on the day of the closure. Please do not call the radio station – tune in and listen for the announcements, or check the radio station websites.


Closure information will also be posted on the district website at and on Twitter @burnabyschools (please follow us!). However, keep in mind that there may be situations where this is not possible, for example, if there are power outages or technical problems. The most reliable way to get school closure information is to listen to the local radio stations.

Information will only be provided on school closures. If there is no closure information, our schools are open for learning! However, the decision to send your child to school or not is ultimately a family decision.
