While Fort Erie schools are open for both the District School Board of Niagara and the Niagara Catholic District School Board today (November 18), students will have to find their own way there.

The Niagara Student Transportation Services posted this morning, “Student Transportation (including Taxis) is cancelled today for Fort Erie for the: District School Board of Niagara and Niagara Catholic District School Board.”

They added, “The decision to cancel student transportation for Fort Erie was based on snowfall accumulations and the ability of school vehicles to navigate secondary roadways and side streets along with the school day forecast.”

Families are asked to visit their website for a complete list of canceled routes and delays. Their site is HERE.

The DSBN followed up with their own message listing specific school.

“Transportation for Fort Erie Schools Cancelled – All Schools are Open. Transportation is cancelled for Garrison Road, John Brant, Peace Bridge, Stevensville, and Greater Fort Erie Secondary School. All schools are open. If your child is staying home, please report their absence.”
