Schools closed today in Nelson, Kaslo, Salmo, Slocan Valley, and East Shore

Creston schools remain open

Submitted by School District 8

To ensure the safety of all our staff and students, schools will be closed today for Nelson, Salmo, Slocan Valley and Kaslo Family of Schools.

Creston schools are still in session.

Students should remain at home or parents should make other accommodations for kids as buses are not running due to snow, roads and difficulty for staff and students to get to school safely.

SD8 staff are to report to their supervisor for instructions.

Buses will not be running. Please ensure that your children are not waiting at the stops for the buses.

Due to power outages, Crawford Bay Elementary Secondary, JV Humphries and Jewett Elementary schools are closed today.

School buses will not be running in those areas.
