⚠️ Extreme Cold Warning ⚠️
If the AMBIENT temperature reaches -34°C or lower as recorded by Environment Canada at the Thunder Bay Airport at 6:00am, student transportation may be cancelled. A decision to cancel service would be sent out no later than 6:30am.
Notifications of an Extreme Cold Cancellation will be sent through the Bus Status app (be sure to download to your mobile device and subscribe to weather cancellations!) and posted on our website and social media accounts as well as media releases to local radio stations.
- Windchill, or what it "feels like" is not a consideration in determining when to cancel transportation
- When there are no other factors affecting the decision, if the temperature is expected to rise above -34°C in time for the end of day bus times, PM buses will be scheduled to run and confirmed at the time of the AM cancellations.
- Students should always be dressed and prepared for current and forecasted weather conditions.
- Parents are reminded that they are responsible for the safety of their children to, from and while at the bus stop and ultimately make the decision on whether to put their children on the bus when buses are running during inclement weather.
