Information About School Status During Inclement Weather
Snow closures and power outages are an annual occurrence in Langley
School District. So where do you go to get information about the status of
schools during periods of inclement weather? If you are able to access the
internet via computer or smartphone, current information about Langley
schools can be accessed at www.sd35.bc.ca. Alerts regarding school status
will appear as a banner at the top of the District website and all school
websites. Clicking on ‘More Details’ will provide more information. We will
also post updates to Twitter @LangleySchools and Facebook
www.Facebook.com/LangleySchoolDistrict.
If you don’t have internet connectivity, but your phone is working, call a
relative or friend in an area that has not been affected by the storm and ask
them to check the district website for you. Current information is also
recorded on the Langley School District’s Information Hotline at 604-532-
1453. (Do not hang up if your call is not connected right away). Local radio
stations are also informed of school status in Langley. Tune in to CKWX
1130 AM, CKNW 980 AM, Country Radio 107.1 FM or CBC 690 AM for
updates.
Please note that Langley District schools are all considered ‘open’ until a
decision to close is required. Decisions on school closures are usually made
by 6:30am. As always, it is a parent’s decision whether to send their child to
school based on safety and individual circumstances. If you feel it is unsafe
for you or your child to travel to or attend an open school for any reason,
please keep your child home and report an absence to the school.
