The Sir John A. Macdonald family of schools will be closing early Friday.
Halifax Regional Centre for Education says bused students will be picked up two hours earlier than their regular dismissal time.
Students who walk will be sent home at their regularly scheduled lunch hour.
All other HRCE schools will dismiss students that the normal time.
HRCE says they made the decision was based on the following information:
- Snow accumulation in the western region of HRM is expected to be between 8.8 and 10.5 cm by 5 p.m., significantly higher than in other parts of HRM.
- Between 2 and 7 cm of snow is expected for most areas of HRM by 5 p.m. which could result in longer transport times for school buses.
- Visibility will be good with winds forecasted to be under 20 km/h.
