Island View High School

School/Bus Cancellation

School Cancellation

There may be circumstances when school is cancelled during the day due to inclement 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.

Island View High School is part of the Island View 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 Island View Family of School is closed then Island View High School is closed.

The Halifax Regional Center for Education (HRCE) 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, on Twitter at, 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 HRCE website.
