School Closings

As an educational organization and employer, the Sunrise School Division believes that the safety of
staff and students is paramount.
 
Extreme Road Conditions:
 
1. If roads are unsafe for travel, bus operations need to be suspended and sites closed.
 
 
Cold Weather Conditions:
 
1. If it is unsafe to operate our buses due to cold weather, we need to suspend bus operations.
2. We need to minimize the risk to staff that would be traveling by car in rural conditions during times
of extreme cold.
