School Cancellation

 There may be circumstances when school is cancelled during the day due to severe weather, power outages or where there is a situation deemed unsafe for our students to be present.

 This decision will be communicated to all schools as close to 11:00 a.m. as possible.

Prince Andrew High School is part of the Prince Andrew Family of Schools.  Usually, weather related cancellations will be announced on the radio according to “Family of Schools’, not the individual school.  Therefore, if you hear announced that the Prince Andrew Family of School is closed then Prince Andrew High School is closed. 

The Halifax Regional School Board takes great care when making the decision to alter the normal operations of schools in the event of severe or inclement weather.  Decisions on school closures and/or bus cancellations are posted on the board’s website at www.hrsb.ns.ca, on Twitter at www.twitter.com/HRSB_Official, recorded on 464-INFO (4636) and communicated to all local radios stations.  You can also receive notice of school and bus cancellations by e-mail or text message by following the link on the front page (left side) of the HRSB website.  If you interested in learning more on how decisions regarding closures and cancellations are made, visit http://www.hrsb.ns.ca/content/id/1137.html.

Our school uses a video surveillance system as part of our continued efforts to support a safe, positive and effective learning environment.  We recognize that the images recorded by this video surveillance system are personal information and, as with all other personal information, we take steps to balance privacy rights with safety and security concerns.  The school has the legal authority to collect this personal information under Section 24 of Nova Scotia’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Only designated staff has access to our video surveillance equipment and such access is restricted as required by law.  The system is used to enhance school safety and to deter or take action in response to unlawful behaviors.

If you have any questions about video surveillance at our school, please contact the principal, Greg MacKinnon.
