Elk Island schools cancel Wednesday morning buses

Children attending Elk Island public and Catholic schools will not be able to catch buses to school Wednesday morning. 

A spokesperson for the public school district said all buses on all routes are cancelled for the morning of Feb. 14 due to weather.

The school district said it would decide later Wednesday whether or not buses would run in the afternoon.

A freezing rain warning was issued Tuesday evening for the City of Edmonton, St. Albert and Sherwood Park areas, along with much of east-central Alberta.

Elk Island Catholic Schools tweeted Tuesday night that its buses would not be running in Sherwood Park, Strathcona County and Fort Saskatchewan due to unsafe road conditions.

The Catholic district said it would update parents in the morning about the status of afternoon buses.
