Snow Day Procedures

Any decision in respect to the closing of Glenlyon Norfolk School is made by the Head of School or designate. The procedure is as follows: 

  • The transportation manager will communicate with the Head of School in the early morning hours, but no later than 6:00 a.m. after determining if any buses are able to run.
  • The Head of School will then decide whether a full school closing (Beach Drive and Pemberton Woods) is necessary.
  • If adverse weather conditions are felt to be such that school closure is necessary, then this announcement will be made on the following radio stations starting before 6:30 a.m.: VIRGIN 107.3 FM, CFAX 1070 AM, CBC 90.5 FM, CIOC 98.5 FM, Q 100.3 FM and JACK 103.5 FM.
  • In addition, if there is a school closure, a broadcast email will be sent to all parents, and a message will be posted on our Facebook page and in our Twitter feed, and sent through the ParentSquare messaging app, indicating this scenario. An alert may also be set on Blackbaud that will be visible when you log in.

 Once the school has been declared CLOSED, it will remain closed for the entire business day. Students and staff are asked not to attend the school on CLOSED days.
