The health and safety of all students is a high priority. Inclement
weather may occasionally result in a delay or cancellation of transportation
services or the early dismissal or closure of schools. To minimize the
disruption of service and possible danger on such days, the Lambton Kent
District School Board has
adopted an Inclement Weather Policy.
The decision to cancel transportation services shall be made prior to
6:30AM and broadcast on radio stations and at
. When transportation services are cancelled, schools
remain open unless otherwise deemed necessary by the Director of Education.
Weather conditions may require cancellations in specific zones only.
There are eight zones within the region of Lambton County and Chatham-Kent.
The zone number(s) will be broadcast on radio stations and website with
specific instructions. Schools names will NOT be a portion of radio
Our school is in ZONE 1. Buses cancelled due to fog in the
morning will run in the afternoon to transport students who have been
dropped off at school.Buses cancelled due to snow conditions in
the morning will
NOT run in the
afternoon. Bussed students who receive a ride to school must also be picked up
at the end of the classes on a day buses have been cancelled due to snow.
Early dismissal will occur only in extreme circumstances. The decision to
have students transported home early will be announced over the radio
stations. Parents/guardians (or alternate emergency contacts) will be
contacted. If no contact can be made after busses leave, the student will
remain at school until parents have been contacted and they have made
arrangements to pick up their children. Adequate staff will remain at the
school to provide supervision.
Download the MySBI (My School Bus Info) app to your phone or tablet. The app is available in Apple's App Store and Google Play. Set up the app by selecting 'WEATHER CANCELLATIONS' and also the BUS NAME (select both morning and afternoon routes) for your children. Weather Cancellations will notify of bus cancellations or delays due to weather. The individual bus notification is for non-weather related delays or cancellations.
