As winter weather approaches, we want to remind parents/guardians, students, and staff about Burnaby School District weather related school closure announcements.
All schools will remain OPEN, unless there is heavy snowfall, damage or other circumstances (eg. power outage) that make it impossible to operate safely. The district will do its best to communicate school or district-wide closures or cancellations by 6:30 am. This information will be posted on the front page of the district website and tweeted out (follow us on Twitter @burnabyschools). However, please keep in mind that there may be situations where this is not always possible, for example, power outages or technical problems.
The most reliable way to learn of school closures is to listen for updates on the following radio stations:
CBC AM 690
CBC Radio One FM 88.1
CKWX AM 1130 – NEWS 1130 AM
CKNW AM 980
Fairchild AM 1470
Fairchild FM 96.1
Please do not call the radio station – simply tune in and listen for the announcements which will be made on a regular basis.
Parents/guardians are responsible for their child’s safe travel to school. Please walk elementary children to the door of their school if you are uncertain whether the school is open or not. If for any reason you feel that your child cannot travel safely to school then you should notify the school that your child will be absent.
Student safety is a shared responsibility. With your cooperation and support related to winter weather procedures, we can achieve safe conditions for all.

Shoe Collection & Art Install – Bring in new or gently used WOMEN’S AND GIRLS SHOES to donate all this week
December 6th is the National Day of Remembrance and Action to Violence Against Women – it is in memorial of the gender-based attack on December 6th, 1989 at l`Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal. Since 1989, there have been 1000 victims of gender-based violence in BC alone, and Moscrop’s Social Justice class would like to help raise awareness of this issue.
In support of the BTA, our SJ students will be collecting new or gently used women’s and girls’ shoes all next week in the main foyer at lunch – Nov. 14-18th. Or, you are welcome to drop off your shoes in Ms. Sawatsky’s Portable 2 at any point in the day. In conjunction with other Burnaby schools, we are hoping to help collect over 970 pairs of shoes that will be arranged as an art installation on the steps of the Vancouver Art Gallery on December 6th. Following the ceremony, the shoes will be donated to people in need in the Lower Mainland. Please consider clearing out your closet, and contributing to this worthy social justice event!
Congratulations to Sarah Baek, Simon Huang and Edward Tang. The “Moscrop Orchestra String Trio” as they are known, were selected to represent the Burnaby School District at the Annual B.C. Government and School Board Trustees Liaison meeting on October 26. The three students were excellent ambassadors for our District as well as being outstanding performers and proudly representing our school.
