Weather Related School Closures


With the possibility of snow in the forecast next week, we wanted to take a moment to remind you about how the Burnaby School District shares weather-related school closures.

How are decisions made?

All schools will remain OPEN unless there is heavy snowfall, damage, or other circumstances – such as a power outage – that make it impossible to open for instruction.

When will I know?

We do our best to communicate school or district-wide CLOSURES by 6:30am. Please note that no announcement will be made that schools are open, except under extreme circumstances.

How will I know?

The information about closures will typically be posted on both the District website ( and Twitter account (@burnabyschools). However, please keep in mind that there may be situations where this is not possible, such as a power outage. Another way to learn about school closures is through local news stations (online, radio, and TV).

Generally, only closures or delays are announced.
