Prescott Winter Closure Policy 2019

Prescott’s Closure Policy 2019

In efforts to keep everyone safe during inclement weather, Prescott will now follow the decision making process of Halifax Regional Municipality’s public schools.

If public schools in the HRM are closed due to winter weather, Prescott programs and social enterprises will also be closed. 

Therefore, we recommend listening to the radio for school closures during winter storms. Parents & Caregivers will also receive a call from Prescott staff to ensure the message is received.

We also recommend signing up for notifications via your cell phone or email directly through Halifax Regional Centre for Education. This service will send a message to you directly if schools in the area are closed. You can sign up here:
