Skiing Cancelled

 

With the forecast predicting extremely cold temperatures tomorrow, we have consulted with Winsport and cancelled the Grade 4 and 5 skiing/snowboarding for Tuesday, January 10.  We are waiting for Winsport to reply to us with a re-scheduled make-up date and will notify parents as soon as possible.  We are continuing to monitor the weather for Thursday before making a decision on whether or not students will go to the ski hill.  Please watch for further messages.

 

Please do not hesitate to call the school office if you have any questions.
