Snowstorms don't Close Schools Here

Posted by on Thursday, February 18, 2016

When large amounts of snow hit Ontario and Quebec on Tuesday many students had the day off from school. Unless you are under the West Quebec School Board.

According to the board chair the board prefers to cancel service on bus-by-bus basis in bad weather. As a result students from the Western Quebec School Board have not had a snow day in years as school buses are rarely cancelled.

When over 50 cm of snow fell on Tuesday the board only cancelled three school buses as the buses are equipped with winter tires.
