Update for families: Early dismissal


Based on conversations with the Emergency Management Office, and on the recommendation of Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency Services, all schools in the following FAMILIES OF SCHOOLS that are currently open will dismiss early today:

  • Bay View High
  • Charles P. Allen High
  • Halifax West High
  • Millwood High

This also includes the Bedford campus of the Bedford Forsyth Education Centre.

Students and staff are safe. This is a proactive precautionary measure based on the uncertainty of the ongoing wildfire situation.

This means:

  • Busses will begin arriving at schools shortly.
  • Once families of elementary school students have been contacted, students will be dismissed.
  • After school activities and EXCEL programs in these schools are also canceled.

We will provide a further updated when new information becomes available.
