Snowfall warning for Greater Victoria issued

IN THE EVENT OF BAD WEATHER, by 6:15am the Superintendent of Schools, Ms Nancy Macdonald, informs area radio stations (e.g CFAX, The Q, CBC Radio, The Ocean, A Channel and CH News) that School District No. 63 schools are closed and/or school buses are cancelled.

NO ANNOUNCEMENT means SCHOOLS AND BUSES are OPERATING AS USUAL. However, judge your local roads and decide if they are safe for travel.

Please ensure your child is dressed for the weather - if they need to wait for a bus or walk home.

1. SD63 Transportation phone-line is: 250-652-7343 (hours are 7:15am – 4:00pm). For school / bussing updates you can also go to the district webpage ( or “twitter@sd63bus” and become a follower.

2. School buses may be late or may not even arrive. Students should wait for 20 minutes and if they have not been picked up then they should return home or follow the plan laid out by their parents/guardians. It is really important that parents/guardians have a plan for their children should the school bus does not arrive.
