Guide Dog at EDHS

 Permanent link
We have had a request to host a Guide Dog at Erin District High School for 3 or 4 days, as part of its socialization and training.  The young dog will be working while in the school and students will not be allowed to touch or play with it while it is here.  Please let the school know if there are any issues, like allergies, that we should be aware of.  The dog could be in the building in the next couple of weeks. Many thanks!

During times of inclement weather, please listen to: 1460 AM CJOY, 106.1 Magic FM, 99.1 FM CBC, News Talk 570 AM, 96.7 FM CHYM, 98.1 FM CHFI, 680 AM CFTR or watch the A channel or CKCO-TV for school transportation cancellations.

A decision to cancel transportation is made by 6:30 am. in order to give parents and drivers sufficient notice. The decision is based on a number of factors, including the actual weather and road conditions, as checked first hand by designated Bus Operators in each geographic area of the district, as well as weather predictions made by Environment Canada, and information on road conditions from the local Road Superintendent. 

Parents and students can check the Board website for bus cancellations, as well as the school website.  It will also be posted on Twitter if you follow the school account.  Parents can also call the school, access the transportation extension, and listen to the latest announcement.
