Old Man Winter has given students of the Comox Valley public schools an early day off.
Due to accumulated snowfall overnight, schools will be closed and buses are cancelled today. While most students will be returning to school next Monday, January 10th, students with essential worker parents or special needs have been attending since the 4th.
Environment Canada is warning of slippery conditions outside, as up to 25cm of snow was forecasted last night.
The latest warning came as another low-pressure system approaches the B.C. coast, with rapidly accumulating snow expected to make travel difficult.
