Important Notice: Program Closures During Severe Weather Conditions

In the event of severe weather conditions, PLASP will share information with you via email, our website, and our social media channels. Please also monitor your local radio/TV stations and your school board’s social media sites for announcements on school closures and bus cancellations.

Snow days
If the school boards decide to close schools to students and staff due to inclement weather, PLASP's programs and Early Learning and Child Care Centres within the schools will not operate. PLASP will notify you via:

If buses are cancelled 
Children will no longer be switching to remote learning if buses are cancelled. Schools will remain open to staff and students. Therefore, PLASP's Before and After School programs will remain open.

P.A. Day Programs
If severe weather conditions occur on a P.A. Day, remember that PLASP's P.A. Day Programs will only open if the schools are also open. Provided the school is open, children will be able to attend the P.A. Day Program from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the school.

Holiday Programs
If severe weather occurs during any of our holiday camps, you will receive an email on closures from PLASP. Information will also be posted on the PLASP website and on social media.

Child Pick Up
If you know you are going to be late, please arrange for one of your emergency contacts to pick up your child from the program. You do not have to notify the Program Director if children are being picked up by one of your registered emergency contacts. Please ensure that your contact information and two emergency contacts are current by logging into your account at www.plasp.com

If you need to arrange for your child to be picked up by someone who is NOT on your emergency contact list, please use the direct extension to leave a voice message for your Program Director. On the rare occasion you may be late, your child will be safe with PLASP staff until you or your emergency contact arrives.
 
Please note: If your child is being picked up by someone other than yourself, PLASP staff will ask for photo ID.

Appropriate Clothing
Please ensure your child has appropriate and warm clothing for outdoor play during the winter months. As part of COVID-19 prevention measures, schools may decide to open windows at certain periods of the day to facilitate circulation. Layered clothing for indoor activities is also recommended.
