Many students in Sudbury are likely still snuggled up in their beds at this time.
Had it been just a regular Monday, they likely would be waking up to the grateful news that today was a snow day. Unfortunately, for the students of the four local school boards, today was a PD day, so the students didn't have classes anyway.
Students in Espanola and Massey who attend St. Mary School and Sacred Heart School, both institutions fall under the Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board, did get a snow day today thanks to cancelled school buses.
Sudbury was the outlier, thanks to the PD day, as school buses remained parked across the North.
Due to the adverse weather and poor road conditions transportation is cancelled today for all schools in the Sault Ste. Marie and Central Algoma areas for all boards, though schools are open.
School buses in the Timmins area are cancelled today. Buses in all of the areas that the North East Tri-Board Student Transportation serves will not be on the road, though most schools are still open. Those closed due to weather are Elk Lake Public School, Kerns Public School and Temagami Public School.
In Barrie, all school buses and vans in Simcoe County have been cancelled, thought schools remain open. All schools in both the Upper Grand District School Board and the Wellington Catholic District School Board are closed Monday due to the inclement weather.
