SD&G – With a winter storm bearing down on the region, it’s turned into a long weekend for students who take the bus to school.

All school buses across the district for English Public, English Catholic, French Public and French Catholic schools have been cancelled.

The schools remain open for those that can get to school.

This is the first “snow day” this season for English students who take the bus in SD&G. It’s the second snow day for French students as buses were cancelled during an English P.D. Day earlier this month.

Environment Canada revised its forecast overnight, calling for 10 to 20 centimeters (4 to 8 inches) of a mixture of snow and ice pellets with more freezing rain mixed with ice pellets tonight.

A winter storm warning is still in effect.
