During severe weather conditions, school boards could close schools. PLASP does not operate programs at schools when they are closed. Please listen to local radio and television stations, check the PLASP website, or follow PLASP on Twitter and Facebook for updates on school closures. PLASP will make every effort to notify families of closures due to inclement weather. Do not bring children to the centre when the school is closed, unless otherwise notified.
Children are kept indoors when Environment Canada issues cold weather alerts, or when outdoor temperatures are -25C or colder, with or without wind chill. Please see our Adverse Weather Conditions Policy for more information. During warmer months, staff monitor Environment Canada for UV index, heat and air quality alerts, and limit time outdoors for children accordingly. Children will be kept in shaded areas, and the centre staff will provide water and SPF 30+ sunscreen with the permission of parents. You are also encouraged to provide your children with protective clothing.
