Freezing rain cancels school buses surrounding Ottawa

Freezing rain cancels school buses surrounding Ottawa The risk of freezing drizzle and rain has led to many rural eastern Ontario schools not getting bus service today. Most of the region is under some sort of advisory about slippery conditions today. That has led to school buses being cancelled: for English public and Catholic schools in Renfrew County, for the Upper Canada District School Board and Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario, for schools in North and Centre Hastings managed by the Tri-Board bus service, and for all French schools in eastern Ontario except those in Ottawa, Kingston and Trenton. Schools will remain open.

Nearly two dozen bus routes were canceled in King County and dozens of flights canceled ahead of Friday evening's snowstorm . Weather models call for 4-8 inches of snow in the Puget Sound region by Saturday afternoon. Hundreds of schools in western Washington also took proactive measures by

AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) - School districts in western New York have already begun canceling school for Wednesday and Thursday. The Amherst, Orchard Park, West Seneca and Williamsville school districts were some of those that announced the cancellation of school for those days on Tuesday

Agencies managing school buses in the area are cancelling service because of a snowstorm that's expected to start around noon and last more than 24 hours.

Up to 40 centimetres of snow is expected to fall on Ottawa, with wind gusts up to 60 km/h.

Closer to Kingston, less snow but stronger winds are in the forecast.

School buses are cancelled today:

  • for English public and Catholic schools in Renfrew County,
  • for the Upper Canada District School Board and Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario,
  • and for schools in the Kingston area managed by the Tri-Board bus service.

There have been no updates for Ottawa schools, eastern Ontario's French schools and western Quebec.

Schools are still open.
