The Sir Wilfrid
Laurier School Board (SWLSB) covers a large territory; Laval,
Laurentides and Lanaudière. The weather conditions are very
different from one region to another making school closures a
complex task with many factors to take into consideration. The
School Board consults with transportation companies, other
school boards and Transport Québec in order to come to a
recommendation to the Director General.
SWLSB students are
transported by different bus companies across our large
territory. Please note that we rarely do board wide closures.
Often only sectorial board closures are recommended.
The best way to get
the most accurate and reliable information is to consult the
homepage of the SWLSB website at
www.swlauriersb.qc.ca , our Facebook

various radio and television networks, please note that we have
no control over the message that is announced.
