Attention parents — if you live on a rural or side road, it's possible you'll have to pick your child up at school this afternoon, even if they were able to catch the bus this morning.

The Sudbury Student Services Consortium just announced via Twitter they won't be able to travel on a number of roads this afternoon due to the freezing rain and poor road conditions.

Several Sudbury Catholic District School Board elementary schools are advising parents that due to the worsening weather, they can come to the school at any time to pick up their child, with no attendance penalty.

Here's a list of the roads the consortium won't be able to service this afternoon:

  • Hanmer and Skead areas: Hanmer Lake, Frenchman Lake, Joe Lake, East Bay, West Bay, Poupore, Higgins and Pinecone. 
  • Espanola/Massey areas: Bass Lake, Willisville, Buckmiller, Old Webbwood and Spanish Sables. 
  • Panache Lake, Wuorinen, Worthington, Chicago Mine, Fairbanks, Kukagami, Red Deer Lake, Hinds, Eden Twp, North Shore, South Shore, Fox Lake, Dryden, Harry, Kalio, Spanish River, Treeview and Markstay side roads (bus service on most of these routes was also cancelled this morning).
