  • If any WRDSB buses are cancelled or secondary schools are closed in ANY geographic areas of the Waterloo Region (Kitchener, Waterloo, Baden, Elmira, Cambridge), the exam schedule in ALL secondary schools will be postponed.
  • The February 3 PA Day will not be moved if a Severe Weather event occurs leading up to this date (moving the PA Day has significant impacts system wide).
  • If a Severe Weather event occurs, all exams will be ‘shifted’ one day (i.e. the exam schedule for February 2 would be shifted to February 4).
