All 47 Greater Victoria Schools will remain open this afternoon. Should road conditions worsen and parents feel the need to pick up students early for the afternoon commute, students will be released to parents. Students will not be marked absent if they must be excused early.
Student safety is our first priority and a shared responsibility. The Greater Victoria Region is large and we understand that some areas may be more difficult to travel than others. It’s always a parent’s decision if you choose to keep your child home due to road conditions.
At this time, Third Wave and Garden City buses will run at their scheduled time. Parents of students picked up by Third Wave buses are encouraged to contact their school.
We anticipate updates from Third Wave and Garden City every hour.
