Winter storm prompts Peel board cancellation of after-school activities

Snow storm

With a major winter storm expected to blanket Mississauga and Brampton in snow today, the Peel District School Board has cancelled after-school activities tonight.

The public board has cancelled all activities that start after classes end in its schools and board offices. These include evening events, continuing education courses, night school and ESL adult programs, among others.

However, about 200 child care programs that are offered in Peel schools by a number of external agencies, such as the YMCA and PLASP Child Care Services, will remain open this evening.

Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board communications and community relations manager Bruce Campbell said, as of about 11 a.m. today, no decision had been made on cancelling after school activities. However, he anticipated cancellations and, if and when the decision is made, the board will post updates to its website and social media accounts.

Environment Canada has issued a winter storm warning for Peel. About 25 centimetres of snow is expected to fall by tomorrow morning and strong winds will mean blowing snow and difficult driving conditions.
