Memo regarding inclement weather during exams

January 11, 2018

​The Lambton Kent District School Board has developed the following plan, which is to be followed in the event of disruptions to the examination schedule, due to inclement weather.

Exams

  • In the event that inclement weather forces the cancellation of buses in any of Zones 1 through 4; exams at all Sarnia-Lambton secondary schools will be cancelled for the day and the exam schedule will be pushed back one day.
  • In the event that inclement weather forces the cancellation of buses in any of Zones 5 through 8; exams at all Chatham-Kent secondary schools will be cancelled for the day and the exam schedule will be pushed back one day.
  • In the event that fog causes a disruption to transportation in any of Zones 1 through 4; exams at all Sarnia-Lambton secondary schools will be delayed for two hours.
  • In the event that fog causes a disruption to transportation in any of Zones 5 through 8; exams at all Chatham-Kent secondary schools will be delayed for two hours.

Transportation in the event of fog

  • In the event of fog, elementary buses in the affected zone(s) will be cancelled, per policy.
  • In the event of fog, buses for secondary students in the affected zone(s) will be operated at a two-hour delay and exams will proceed with a two hour delayed start time. If conditions do not improve the delayed secondary routes will be cancelled and exams cancelled for the day. A decision will be made and posted by 7:30 a.m. if buses are to be operated. 
  • All buses, elementary and secondary, will run at the end of the day, as normal.

Classes on last day of semester

If buses are cancelled due to inclement weather on the last day of the semester, Thursday, January 25, 2018 exams will still begin on Friday, January 26, 2018 as scheduled.

More than one day of cancellations during exam week
If buses are cancelled for two or more days during exam week, Senior Administration will determine appropriate action to address the lost time and second semester start-up.

In the event of inclement weather, students and parents/guardians should listen to local radio stations for announcements regarding transportation and the exam schedule or visit www.schoolbusinfo.com
