We have cancelled paratransit for the day because of extreme wind chill. All schools remain open. Paratransit ONLY.
Regular yellow school buses are still running as usual. Please bundle up, whether you’re walking or waiting for the bus! pic.twitter.com/05wToULASg
All other transportation is running normally, the two school boards say.
Classes will continue as scheduled as well. Drivers are asked to keep a special eye out for students, who may be wearing hoods or hats while walking to school.
The city of Regina is under an extreme cold warning, with wind chills making it feel like -40 to -45 C due to a cold, Arctic air.
