The decision to close the school is made between 5:30am and 6:30am and it will be based upon the road conditions in the Coquitlam/Burnaby/New Westminster area.
When John Knox Christian School decides to close due to inclement weather or other emergency situations, we will publicly announce this decision by 6:30am at the following locations:
· CKNW (980 AM) radio
· Global TV
· Our school’s website: www.johnknoxbc.org
· The Echoolab app, Facebook, Instagram
Please do not phone the office to see whether or not the school is closed. Instead, please check the above communication tools first!
During days in which the school is open and the weather is questionable, we ask that our parents use discretion when making a decision about coming to school. We do not want parents to feel that they need to put their family at risk in order to attend school.
Elementary and secondary campuses will each make their own decisions whether they are open or not. Should the elementary release the students early, and the secondary remains open, it is expected that the secondary students will remain in classes until they are dismissed. The school buses will continue to run at their regular times.
