All buses both rural and in-town throughout the Foothills School Division are cancelled for Friday March 16.
However, all schools will remain open.
Here's the latest from the Foothills School Division:
UPDATE 5:30pm - Notice to Foothills School Division (FSD) families:
Winter weather continues across the Foothills region and road conditions are rapidly declining. Due to an expected increase in snow levels, dropping temperatures, and winds we are predicting that road conditions on Friday March 16, 2018 will have deteriorated beyond acceptable operation levels.
School buses are cancelled for Friday March 16. FSD will not operate morning or afternoon transportation services. All in-town and rural routes are cancelled. Scheduled field trips requiring transportation will also be cancelled.
Schools will remain open. We recognize that families may rely on us to provide care and shelter for their children. Please be aware that if you transport your child in the morning you will also be required to provide transportation home at the regular school dismissal time.
We also respect that parents have the primary role in deciding if their children will attend classes. Safety remains a priority so please ensure you report any absences to your school.
The Christ the Redeemer School Division says they too will not be running their rural buses Friday, but say their routes in both High River and Okotoks will be running as normal.
