Snow and Inclement Weather Procedures

There are three possible scenarios for inclement weather:

We will post an update tomorrow when we know more about what happens overnight!  We will also activate the snow chain once we know tomorrow morning.

1) Buses running on main roads only
Schools are open as normal but the buses will be running on the main roads only. Parents should listen to one of the following radio stations to hear announcements regarding bus service: CJSU 89.7 FM Duncan, CBC Radio 1 690 AM, CBC Radio 1 Victoria 90.5 FM and CFSI 107.9 FM Salt Spring. See the following link for a main roads only schedule: http://sd64.bc.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/mainroads20130107.pdf

2) Buses and/or water taxis not running, but schools open
Most students will likely not attend, but school is open. Parents should listen to one of the following radio stations to hear announcements regarding bus service: CJSU 89.7 FM Duncan, CBC Radio 1 690 AM, CBC Radio 1 Victoria 90.5 FM and CFSI 107.9 FM Salt Spring. Please use your discretion to decide if it is safe to transport your child to school.

3) Schools closed
Only in the most extreme cases would the school actually be closed. In this situation, please check our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/GulfIslandsSecondary) OR our blog (http://gulfislandssecondaryschoolnews.blogspot.ca/) AND announcements will again be made on the radio.

* Notices are also often posted on the front page of the district website in all three scenarios.
