We have been watching the ice-jam situation in
the Upper Saint John River carefully today. Following the advice of emergency
response officials with the Town of Perth-Andover and the Province of New
Brunswick, schools will re-open tomorrow, Wednesday, March 31st, with the
caveat that if we were to get any indication of a flood on or during a school
day, we would call for the closure of the impacted schools as quickly as
With the safety of our staff and students in

provide you with updates as necessary.
Thank you for your patience.
