Weather warnings, poor road conditions close some Manitoba schools again

Some Manitoba school divisions have cancelled in-school classes for the second day in a row due to poor road conditions from snowstorms this week.
Snowfall warnings and winter storm warnings were in effect for much of the southern half of Manitoba on Tuesday, with some areas getting 10 to 20 centimetres of snow.
Winter storm warnings issued Tuesday were extended in some parts of the province Wednesday.
The warnings and poor driving conditions have led to class cancellations in:

- Mennonite Collegiate Institute.
- Pine Creek School Division.
- Seine River School Division.
- Sunrise School Division.

In the Prairie Rose School Division, St. Laurent School is closed, with staff told to work from home. Elsewhere in the division, in-school classes have been cancelled but staff are asked to work from school.
Prairie Spirit School Division has many schools closed, but not all. Details about which schools are closed can be found on the school division's website.
The Brandon School Division is not running buses outside the city Wednesday, and in Winnipeg, the Louis Riel School Division has cancelled buses east of Plessis Road and south of the Perimeter Highway due to inclement weather.
