Inclement Weather

Schools in Nanaimo-Ladysmith are closed occasionally due to inclement weather or power outages.  If the health and/or safety of students and/or staff is endangered, the Superintendent is authorized to close a school(s) temporarily; dismiss students in emergency situations and cancel district transportation services.  These decisions are made on a case-by-case basis.

If schools are closed due to weather-related problems, announcements will be made on local radio stations (WOLF 106.9 FM,WAVE 102.3 FM, and 91.7 COAST FM) by 7 a.m. on the day of the closure.  Please do not call the radio station – tune in and listen for the announcements, which will be made on a regular basis.

In addition, the district will post the information on the district’s website, Twitter, Facebook and mobile app.  Please keep in mind, however, that there may be situations where this is not always possible, for example, power outages or technical problems.  The most reliable method is to listen to the local radio stations.
