The purpose of this message is to clarify expectations and the impact that a severe weather day would have on the Semester I exam schedule and the February 2, 2018 PD day.
When any WRDSB buses are cancelled in any geographic area of the Waterloo Region (Kitchener, Waterloo, Baden, Elmira, Cambridge), the exam schedule in all secondary schools will be postponed.
The February 2, 2018 PD day will not be moved if a severe weather day occurs leading up to this date (moving the PD day has a significant impact system-wide).
When a severe weather day occurs during the formal exam schedule (January 26 to February 1, 2018), all exams will be shifted forward one day (i.e. the exam schedule for Friday, January 26 would be shifted to Monday, January 29).
The first day of semester 1 is scheduled for Monday, February 5th.
