Last night we had around 7cm of snow accumulate on the ground. That, matched with the 10-15cm we are expecting this today, lead the Nipissing Parry Sound Student Transportation Services to cancel the school buses

The NPSSTS said it’s the snow accumulation and road conditions that make driving unsafe for bus drivers and passengers

All of West Nipissing is affected including Lavigne, Sturgeon Falls, River Valley, Field, Jocko Point, and Verner

At this time, all schools remain open for students who can get there safely. Parents are reminded that cancelled bus routes will not run in the afternoon; any students brought to school by other means must be picked up at the end of the school day.
