Inclement Weather Procedures

In the event of severe inclement weather, East Garafraxa Public School will be OPEN to those students who can be driven. Drop off is 8:45 and pickup is no later than 3:15 pm.

Parents are not expected to drive their children to school in bad weather and students will not be penalized for attendance if they do not attend when buses are cancelled. Parents should assess weather and road conditions and make their own decision about whether or not it is safe for their children to be driven to school.

When students have traveled to school on the bus and should the weather change during the course of the day, they will continue to travel home on the bus at their regularly scheduled time.
