Keeping in Touch with Mother Nature

Grenoble PS Alert System

As we all know, the weather conditions in Canada can, at times, be severe. When conditions are so severe as to warrant school closures, it is imperative that parents and students be made aware of these closures. This is why we have decided to implement an alert system on this website. Any important alerts regarding inclement weather conditions, road closures or any other events that can alter the school day at Grenoble PS will be posted in the "Special Alerts".

The following is a letter to parents from the Toronto District School Board regarding school closures. Below that you will find alternate sources of information regarding school closures.



Dear Parent/Guardian:

Occasionally, severe weather conditions may require the Toronto District School Board to cancel transportation and close schools. This may occur before the beginning of the school day or, if conditions become severe, during the school day. To ensure the safety and welfare of students and staff during school hours, the Board's Severe Weather operational procedures will guide decisions and operations.

The safety and welfare of students is a shared responsibility with parents and guardians. It is important for everyone to understand how the Board operates under unusual weather conditions. Please familiarize yourself with the following procedures and communication plan so together we can ensure the safety of the students entrusted in our care.

Keeping Your Child Safe
In the event of severe weather conditions, please keep children at home, if possible.
