Snow days refer to those days where either the School Division or individual schools cancel classes or close the school due to weather conditions. The Brandon School Division has only been closed one day in the last 30 years due to winter storms, however our rural schools at CFB Shilo and Alexander have closed more frequently.
There may also be days where division-wide bus service, or select routes are delayed or cancelled due to hazardous road conditions. When there is the possibility of inclement weather, visit the Brandon School Division Website at www.bsd.ca, our social media channels and our local media outlets.
When there is the possibility of inclement weather, school closures or transportation notices, an Orange Alert Notice will appear on the top of the home page of our website at www.bsd.ca and our social media channels. Local media outlets will be provided with detailed information.
The Brandon School Division's Supervisor of Transportation is in contact with local municipal offices and, after surveying the bus routes, any necessary decisions are made by 6:30 am.
Brandon School Division's first priority is always the safety of our students. Therefore, if a decision is made to cancel bus service or close a school, we will notify local media outlets prior to 7:00 am to advise which buses have been cancelled, which buses (if any) will be operating, and whether any of our schools are closed. An automated phone call will be also sent out to each affected family as soon as possible.
Should you have any questions, please contact your child's school or our Transportation Office:
