School Bus Transportation CANCELLED for Friday, February 8

School bus transportation is CANCELLED across Renfrew County for Friday, Febraury 8, due to the icy roads from the freezing rain we received overnight. 

Schools remain OPEN today.

The decision affects all schools with the English and French-language school boards.

Bus transportation in the Bancroft area is also cancelled this morning,

Renfrew County is no longer under any weather advisories, but we are expecting some windy conditions with a sharp drop in temperatures as a cold front arrives later today.

The wind gusts are expected to be up to 70 km/h in Renfrew County on Friday afternoon, but Environment Canada says areas to the east of us, including Ottawa and Lanark County, could experience very strong wind gusts of up to 80 km/h with the arrival of the cold front.
