Inclement Weather Bus Cancellation notice:

Inclement Weather Bus Cancellation notice:  Please note that Black Gold Regional Schools will not be operating any school busses in the Division Wednesday, January 18, 2012 due to the warning issued by Environment Canada as follows:

Leduc - Camrose - Wetaskiwin - Tofield
10:15 AM MST Tuesday 17 January 2012
Wind chill warning for
Leduc - Camrose - Wetaskiwin - Tofield continued

Wind chill values of minus 40 to 50 developing tonight.

This is a warning that extreme wind chill conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.

Cold Arctic air has invaded much of Alberta and will bring temperatures of minus 30 to 35 overnight. These temperatures combined with winds near 15 to 20 km/h will give wind chills of minus 40 to 50 in the above mentioned regions overnight.

At these extreme wind chill values frostbite on exposed skin may occur in less than 10 minutes.

So far I have heard from Parkland School Division, St. Thomas Aquinas School Division and Elk Island Catholic Schools that they will not be running.  Wetaskiwin Public Schools have said they will intend to run and make the decision in the morning.

The information can also be found on the main website at www.blackgold.ca, an automatic voice mail will be sent to all bus student’s parents and drivers will contact rural parents. 

Schools are open.

We have every intention of operating the following day, Thursday January 19, 2012.
