All school buses serving the Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB) and the London District Catholic School Board (LDCSB) are cancelled all day Thursday due to freezing rain.
Both school boards said that all schools will remain open.
Student Transportation Services announced the London, Ont., region-wide bus cancellation early Thursday after a severe weather statement was issued by Environment Canada in the wake of a predicted winter storm.
The weather agency warned the public that highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become slippery or difficult to navigate due to freezing rain and accumulating snow.
“Drive according the road and weather conditions because if you see ice, think twice, and if you see snow, go slow,” said Cont. Ed Sanchuck with Norfolk County OPP.
Officials also reported that winds gusts near 70 km/h were expected to blow through the region on Thursday.
The freezing rain warning has since been lifted for the area.
