Selkirk College, SD8 declare snow day

Due to heavy snow, all Selkirk College campuses, facilities and learning centres are closed today.

All services and any in-person classes/activities are cancelled, the college said in a news release. Previously scheduled resumption of in-person instruction in most programs for January 10 is unchanged. Online learning and remote work arrangements scheduled for today can proceed as planned.

“We need to ensure the safety of our students and employees,” says Kerry Clarke, Selkirk College vice president of college services. “Travel and access is an issue, so it’s important to take an extra day to dig out.”

Unless otherwise communicated, campuses, learning centres, and facilities will reopen tomorrow and all previously scheduled activities can resume unless conditions warrant an extension to the closure.

Meanwhile, the Kootenay Lake school district has closed all schools today to students and staff.

The district says it is working to ensure all schools are prepared for the phased reopening of schools starting Wednesday. This week schools are available to children of essential workers and students with diverse learning needs. Schools will fully re-open to all students on Jan. 10.
