Nova Scotia school boards are required to share information about their schools, and their education programs and services in a document called the Long-Range Outlook (Outlook). The purpose of the Outlook is to help school boards and school communities have more informed discussions about the future of their schools, and the programs and services they offer. School boards have until April 30, 2015 to complete this document and post it on their website for public feedback. For more information, visit the Halifax Regional School Board website at:

School Closure/ Emergency Dismissal

The School Boardís decision to cancel school will usually be made as close to 6:00 a.m. as possible and it will be communicated on the radio, the Board's website, the boardís main switchboard and through the school cancellation number - 464- INFO (4636).  If busses are cancelled and schools are open, parents must use their own discretion with regard to bringing their children to school.  When buses are cancelled in the morning due to weather conditions, buses are also cancelled in the afternoon.  When schools are open, meaningful learning activities will be going on in classrooms.  Students who are unable to attend due to inclement weather and/or bus cancellation will not be penalized because of assignments given or due on that day.

Please advise the office as soon as your emergency contact information changes.  In the event of an early dismissal emergency Phone Trees are put into effect and students are not permitted to leave until contact with families (caregiver) is made.  HRH is part of the Millwood High School Family of Schools.
