Student Drivers - Inclement Weather

  • Driving In Inclement Weather: Is Your Student Ready?

    Student Driver - Car under snow. Road conditions may not be appropriate for inexperienced drivers during inclement weather. Parents should determine whether their student drivers have the experience to drive in certain road conditions. The school division’s decision to close or delay school is based on the ability of our professional school bus drivers to safely transport students to and from school. 

    School administrators and parents are to be aware that School Board Policy allows parents the option of not sending their child to school during inclement weather when, in the parent’s judgment, conditions in their neighborhood are unsafe. In such cases, upon notification by the parent, the student will receive an excused absence. The student will be required to make up any work missed.
