School Closed Today

Good Morning Families!

You may have already seen or heard the news, but it is officially an Inclement Weather Day for YRDSB. School is CLOSED to students and all transportation is CANCELLED.

Teachers have posted asynchronous material for students to work through today at their own pace. This work can be found on Google Classroom.

We look forward to seeing everyone back at school tomorrow (January 18th)! Please contact us through email today if you have any questions or concerns.

Stay safe!

YRDSB email to families from January 16, 2022:

As noted in our earlier communication to families, this year, when an inclement weather day is declared, school transportation will be cancelled and schools will be closed to students. If an inclement weather day is declared, please do not send your child to school. We are unable to guarantee appropriate coverage for students on incleme nt weather days when school transportation is closed and classes cannot be combined. In previous years, schools have remained open when school transportation is cancelled, however, given the importance of adhering to our health and safety guidelines, schools will be closed to students on inclement weather days. 

Announcements will be posted as early as possible and no later than 6:00 a.m. Please check the following for updates: 

  • Student Transportation Services
  • Student Transportation Hotline: 1-877-330-3001
  • @YRDSB Twitter account
  • Board website ( and school websites
  • Radio and TV media outlets

Please continue to monitor local media for up to date weather forecasts and take safety precautions advised by local authorities. 

Our priority continues to be the safety of our students, staff members and families.
