Looking ahead to this weekend's weather
Posted on 09/22/2022
Inclement Weather

Our region is expected to receive significant rainfall and hurricane-force winds over the weekend due to the incoming storm. Although we hope it passes without much property damage/power outages, we want families to be aware of how we will communicate if the storm impacts the opening of school on Monday. 

CCRCE is watching the path of the storm closely, and we have plans in place to inspect all of our buildings following the storm and make decisions about Monday opening, if necessary. 

Plan of Action

With the storm expected to hit sometime on Friday evening through Saturday, our Operations staff has been preparing with school staff to ensure all of our buildings are secure.

All CCRCE schools will be closed as of 6:00 p.m. Friday, September 23, 2022, and will remain closed throughout the weekend. As a result, all extra-curricular and/or community activities will be cancelled and/or rescheduled.

Once the storm passes and it is safe, staff will check schools to determine if there are any impacts on our ability to open on Monday.

If there are going to be any cancellations or delays, we will share this information in a number of different ways. We recognize any decisions to close a school or schools has an impact on families so we will share any information as soon as a decision has been made.

How will we let you know?

If there are any impacts (delays or cancellations) to a school or family of schools, you can expect to find the information in the following ways:

  • Check our website at www.ccrce.ca
    • An alert will pop up when you first visit the website if there is a cancellation.
