School Closure for Monday, June 28
There will be no school today, Monday, June 28th due to the extreme heat warning for Metro Vancouver. Please see the attached letter from Scott Robinson, Superintendant of Schools for the Richmond School District.
As you may be aware, the great majority of our schools have no air conditioning systems and many do not have mechanical ventilation systems to move air inside the building. This means that temperatures inside the schools will very likely be as hot inside as they are outside.
In the interests of the health and safety of our students and staff, the district therefore asks that parents/caregivers keep their children home tomorrow (Monday, June 28). We will reassess for Tuesday, June 29 and will communicate with all families tomorrow (Monday) evening.
