INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY
The Burlington Academy does not follow Region 10. Public school personnel make decisions to close, delay opening, or close early to ensure safe school bus operation and the safety of school children waiting at bus stops. At The Burlington Academy of Learning, we do not have these issues and refrain from closing, delaying opening or closing early as many of our parents have work commitments that go on, despite adverse weather. Those of you in this category depend on us not only for your children's education but also their care while you meet your work commitments. Therefore, our policy is to keep the school open as usual and allow parents to make their own decisions as to whether or not to drive to and from school.
In the event of severe weather and/or the state closes, we will close and the announcement is posted on TV, radio, our parent communication portal School Speak, sent to parents via email and by SMS Text by 5:30am. If we must communicate with parents during the day regarding an emergency message, we will use our SMS Texting system.
