This procedure applies to cancellation of classes because of storms, other major disruption, or any other reason in Halifax Regional Municipality only. (Members in Chapters of SCANS outside HRM should follow the policy outlined by their own Chapter)
Generally, if the public schools are cancelled throughout HRM because of weather conditions, then SCANS will also be cancelled. (Note: The Maritime Conservatory has its own cancellation policy which would be applied to SCANS classes, as appropriate.) SCANS will check the websites of these two organisations in the early morning and, if necessary, will then post cancellation notices on both the SCANS website and CBC website, between 7.00 and 8.00 am.
