While classes will be back in session Monday for Livingstone Range School Division students, buses won’t run.

That decision was made Sunday afternoon with overnight temperatures near -35 degrees Celsius in Pincher Creek and Crowsnest Pass, and wind chills near -49.

Parents choosing to drop their children off at school should make arrangements to pick them up at the end of the day, as well, LRSD recommends in its statement.

The school division hopes to be running a normal bus schedule starting Tuesday morning, with the forecast showing a rise in temperature to -14. Predicted wind chills, though, will still be in the -20s.
