School Bus CANCELLATION/Weather Warning December 7th, 2022

HTCSD Transportation Notice


Dressing for Cold Weather

We encourage all students/children to stay warm and safe this winter season.  Please ensure that your child is comfortable when outside in particular during extreme weather when it is very cold.  Below is a list of recommended clothing to help your child be safe outside:

  • Warm Footwear
  • Ski Pants
  • Gloves and Mitts
  • A toque or hood
  • A jacket rated for the weather
  • Scarf

The Canadian Red Cross prevention tips are listed below so people can stay warm and safe, while avoiding cold-related emergencies:

  • Cover your head and upper body to keep heat in. Wear a hat and layers of clothing made of wool or synthetic woven fabrics.
  • Cover up exposed areas like your ears, nose, cheeks, and fingers
  • Change into dry clothes as quickly as possible if you get wet in the cold
  • Drink plenty of warm liquids to keep your body hydrated
  • Eat high calorie food and drinks so that your body will convert them into energy to heat your body
  • Avoid tight clothing or footwear that can prevent circulation
  • Bring extra clothing along in case you need more layers or if clothing gets wet while outdoors
  • Shelter yourself from the wind if you feel cold – a tree, hill, embankment, or another shield will work
