53 schools are closed across Montreal today due to inclement weather

Feb 7 2020, 6:02 am

Today is every child’s favourite day of the school week — a snow day.

Up to 50 cm of snow is expected to hit Montreal throughout Friday and the treacherous driving conditions have forced 53 schools across the Metro Montreal area to close.

Environment Canada forecasts the snow to persist through until Friday night along with northeasterly wind gusts, blowing snow at up to 60 km/h per hour.

The weather agency recommends people consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

In announcing the cancellation of its schools, day cares, and extra-curricular activities, the Lester B. Pearson School Board states that “all normal activities will resume Monday.”
