Superintendent Angus Wilson posted the information on Twitter early this morning.
Wilson wrote “Deroche area parents: Friday January 17th. Deroche Elementary School is closed. Buses are not running on Nicomen Island or further east at this time. Buses #1, 2, 9, & 12 will travel as far as Dewdney Elementary.”
He also reminded parents that while all other Mission schools are open today, “you need to determine whether or not travel is safe from your location, especially families east of Dewdney especially.”
The University of the Fraser Valley is also reopening today.
On the UFV Twitter account it states “ All UFV campuses open – except Hope Centre closed. Allow extra time for commuting due to winter road conditions. UFV Student Union Society shuttle bus status not yet determined but will be updated at 7 a.m.”
