CALGARY— The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) would like to thank our staff, parents and students for the positive response to today’s challenges due to the weather conditions.

We had approximately 60 facilities without power for at least a portion of the day. As of 3:45 p.m. there were still 19 schools without power. This number is changing quickly as power is restored.

Yellow school buses continued to run this afternoon. Parents are able to view the status of buses on the My School Bus Monitor website at www.myschoolbusmonitor.com.

The CBE will continue to monitor the status of all of our schools overnight and will provide an update by 6:45 Thursday morning.

Parents can visit www.cbe.ab.ca for updates on the status of our schools.
