All Halifax Regional Centre for Education schools will be closed today (Tuesday, December 18).
HRCE Central Office will open at 10 am.
Today’s decision was based on the following information:
- Snow expected to accumulate through the morning commute time, up to 7 cm of accumulation.
- Road surfaces will present slippery conditions as the snow intensifies throughout the morning.
- Wind gusts are forecasted to reach near 70 km/h which may reduce visibility in some areas.
- Temperatures expected to drop quickly in the afternoon.
