O'Connell Drive Elementary

Delayed opening - December 18th, 2020

Good Morning Parents and Guardians,

Below is the message from the HRCE website.

Friday December 18, 2020
All Halifax Regional Centre for Education schools will be delayed in opening by two hours today.

School bus service will also operate on a two-hour delay. Students will be picked up two hours later than their originally assigned pick up time pending any delays due to traffic and local road conditions.

Lunch and dismissal times we remain at their regularly scheduled times. The EXCEL program will be cancelled for the morning only.

Today's decision was based on the following information:

Snowfall tailed off by 3 am with up to 20 cm in some areas

HRM and DTIR crews having been clearing roads overnight and will continue through the morning

School driveways and parking lots will be cleared early this morning

Visibility is good with moderate winds gusting to 30 km/h throughout the day
