All schools in the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board are closed today due to the weather. This includes schools in the Municipality of East Hants, and the counties of Pictou, Cumberland and Colchester.
With snow and freezing rain throughout the province, drivers are urged to use caution if they have to travel on the roads today.
"I want to remind drivers to drive with caution, watch out for slippery roads and slow down for the conditions," said Maurice Smith, Minister Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal. "Taking a few extra minutes to plan ahead is well worth the effort to ensure that everyone arrives safely at their destination."
