Both divisions said road conditions make it difficult for bus service and decided to cancel it Thursday and now again on Friday as in-person classes will be held as regularly scheduled.

“The winter storm that hit the central and southern parts of the province over the weekend has made travel on streets difficult and potentially dangerous,” read a statement from Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools.

“We thank city crews for working around the clock and making significant progress in clearing priority streets. However, it is still difficult to navigate in some areas.”
