Have you ever wondered “when is it too cold and when is it not” for your child to go to school? Well the Labrador School Board has a guideline that answers that.
Jacob Larkin is the Principal at the Jens Haven Memorial School in Nain.
He says when it comes to cancelling school due to extremely cold wind-chills, this is the guideline that schools on the coast follow:
When the wind-chill is down to minus 45, there is no school for Grades K-3; minus 50- no school for K-7, and when it’s minus 55, no school for all grades.
So next time it’s really cold outside and until it warms up you may hear CBC radio tell us school is closed for certain grades.
