REMINDER: Weather Procedures

As the winter weather gets more intense in the next couple of months, students, staff and guardians of students who attend St. Louis programs should monitor the WCDSB and St. Louis websites, social media feeds (Facebook, X and Instagram), and radio stations for information on cancellations. Student Transportation Services of Waterloo Region is responsible for communicating all weekday early morning decisions with respect to inclement weather to the media, school bus operators, and taxi companies. Evening and Saturday communication comes directly from St. Louis.

SAMPLE:

Weekdays

Whenever Waterloo Catholic District Schools are announced as CLOSED due to extreme weather, all St. Louis Adult Education sites will be closed as well.

Evening Classes

When conditions deteriorate during the day, a decision will be made by 3:00 p.m. about running evening classes. If a decision to cancel is made, the WCDSB and St. Louis websites and social media feed will be updated, and when possible, media will be contacted.

Saturday Classes

For Saturday morning (International Languages & Skills Builder) classes, a decision to cancel would be made Saturday morning by 7:00 a.m. If classes are cancelled, the Program Manager of International Languages and Saturday Skills Builder will contact classroom teachers who then contact their students and or guardians to alert them that Saturday morning classes have been cancelled. The Board’s website and social media feed will be used as a secondary measure to broadcast this message where possible.
