Severe Weather Procedures
In the event of severe weather conditions, ErinoakKids sites will close if the local school board closes. For example, the Mississauga site will close if schools in Peel are closed, or the Halton/Oakville site will close if schools in Halton are closed. There are also situations where we may decide to close a site during business hours, as weather conditions worsen. In all situations, the safety of clients, families, staff and volunteers is our priority.
When an ErinoakKids site is closed, all appointments, workshops and classes are cancelled at that site.
How will I know if my appointment is cancelled due to severe weather?
We will post closures on our website by 7:30 a.m. and record a message on our phone lines. Where possible, families with appointments will receive a phone call to inform them of a cancelled appointment.
