As you know, we are experiencing some colder, snowy weather this week. With this type of weather comes the potential for the RBA Child Care to have to close due to the weather conditions. For your information here is our process regarding this matter.
1. Should the Burnaby School District call a closure due to the weather, the RBA Child Care will also close in this case. Please monitor the local radio/news stations each day to learn if a closure has been called by the Burnaby School District. Here is the link to the Burnaby School District website: http://sd41.bc.ca/parents/weather_closure.htm
2. In some cases, the RBA Child Care may also determine that the weather is so extreme that opening is not possible; even if the Burnaby School District has decided to open. If this is the case, we will call our own weather closure.
3. If we determine that the RBA Child Care is to be closed for the day due to weather, we will send out an email to all families. In addition, we will post information on the child care blog. The child care blog can be found at: http://www.rbkidsblog.typepad.com/
We will do this as soon as the decision is made to close the centre and as early as possible in the morning (i.e. by 6:30 AM). In some cases, we may determine to close the child care early should the weather become extreme; after the centre has opened for the day. If this is the case, we will make phone calls to all parents whose children are in attendance at the centre; in addition we will email and post information on the RB Kids blog.
4. Families are reminded that RBA Child Care does not issue refunds for weather closure days. In addition, we do our best to keep the child care operational; however in extreme weather situations we will close the child care so as to ensure the safety of the children, their families and RBA teachers.
