School Cancellation Due To Inclement Weather

School Cancellation Due To Inclement Weather

Key Messages to Parents:

  • The decision to cancel school will usually be made as close to 6:00 a.m. as possible and it will be communicated on the radio, the Board’s website, the main switchboard and through the school cancellation number: 464-INFO (4636).
  • Listen for either the Family name “Halifax West Family of Schools” or the individual name of the school in all cancellation announcements.
  • Parents should ensure that students are properly dressed for the weather conditions, regardless of whether they travel by bus or walk.
  • Before dropping students off at school on inclement weather days, parents should ensure that staff have arrived and are immediately available to provide supervision.
  • When busses are cancelled and schools are open, parents must use their own discretion with regard to sending their children to school.
  • When schools are open, meaningful learning activities will be going on in classrooms.
  • Students who are unable to attend due to inclement weather and/or bus cancellation will not be penalized because of assignments given or due on that day.

Library looking for game donations

BJHS Library is looking for donations of your good condition used board games, cards, dice, crib boards etc!

Anything your family has become bored with or outgrown please send to the office or library.

We would like to have a collection available for students to use at lunch, particularly on those rainy days and during the cold winter months.

Any games that don’t end up becoming used in the library will be passed on to the classrooms or a charitable organization. Thank you for helping out our library!

Community Events



The Nova Scotia International Student Program brings students from around the world to Nova Scotia public schools to learn our language and culture. Be an integral part of a student’s learning experience– become a host family.
This is a great opportunity for your family to experience and share culture first hand. Your family will be matched up with a student and they will participate in your daily family routines.

Host Families receive a tax free monthly stipend to help
cover the cost of food and any extra transportation expense
Students stay for periods of 2 to 10 months
Ongoing support is provided by an experienced Homestay
You will learn about and communicate with your student
before arrival
Host Families are asked to provide a private bedroom, 3
balanced meals a day and inclusion in family activities

Visit our website for more information: www.nsisp.ca

For more information on how to become a host family
