Emergency evacuation of all schools from the Montreal School Board

I have just learned that the “Commission scolaire de Montreal” has ordered the evacuation of all of its schools.

Évacuation d’urgence, le vendredi 14 mars 2008 – Compte tenu de l’accumulation de neige, à titre de mesure préventive, la CSDM procède actuellement à l’évacuation de tous ses établissements scolaires. Les endroits où les élèves ont été déplacés seront indiqués sur chacune des portes des établissements. Une chaîne téléphonique a été déclenchée pour joindre tous les parents. Tous les établissements scolaires seront donc fermés jusqu’au lundi 17 mars inclusivement.

High school students are being sent home while the evacuation points for younger students are listed on the doors of their respective schools. This decision came as a result of inspections that were ordered after a snow-induced roof collapse killed three workers in Morin Heights.

Schools from the Commission scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys, which covers most of the West Island, are not considered to be at risk and classes will continue this afternoon.
