Whenever it snows, the STA office receives inquiries from teachers about what processes should be put in place at schools and what to do if it is difficult to travel to work.
All schools in the Surrey School District will remain OPEN, except under extreme circumstances. Complete details are available and this is a useful infographic you can share with your school community.
Please listen to the early news for weather reports. School closures are announced on CKNW 980 and on News 1130. If schools are closed, they are closed for students only and staff are expected to report to work unless otherwise directed.
Employees, though, have the right and the responsibility to determine whether attempting to attend their school site in severe weather conditions could compromise their safety and their personal decision supersedes any district determinations regarding cancellation of classes. If you have questions or concerns, please contact STA Health & Safety Officer, Gavin Slade-Kerr at firstname.lastname@example.org.Leave a reply
