Niagara school buses — for both Public and Catholic schools — are cancelled, while schools remain open.
This is the message from the Executive Director of Niagara Student Transportation Services:
“Student Transportation is cancelled today for the District School Board of Niagara and the Niagara Catholic District School Board. Schools for both school boards remain open today. We projected too many bus delays this morning due to blowing snow and extreme cold for students waiting for us at their bus stops in these frigid conditions.”
Niagara is under a blowing snow advisory and an extreme cold warning, with temperatures hitting -20°C tonight.
‘Environment Canada’ initially called for snowfall between 15 and 20 centimeters, but parts of Niagara were covered by nearly 30 centimeters!
