School Closures During Extreme Cold Weather
Extreme cold weather is an inevitable part of life in northern Alberta. Please note, while we respect a family’s decision to send their child to school, or not, during inclement weather, schools do not close due to freezing temperatures.
We have numerous families where parents leave for work before students go to school, and it is therefore imperative to be open to receive students. This is for the safety of our students.
Interruption of power or water service, other disruptive emergencies, or unforeseen extraordinary circumstances could warrant school closure. Please check the District’s social media platforms @FMPSD on Twitter, and Fort McMurray Public School District on Facebook for updates.
We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
Further queries can be directed to the principal of your child’s school.
