Greater Victoria students might face a few delays, but the flurries and -4 degree temperature don’t mean a snow day for kids.
Greater Victoria School District 61 (SD61) tweeted early Monday morning that all schools are open and busses are running.
“Please dress warm and use caution during your morning commute. Some roads and sidewalks are slippery in areas,” the District tweeted.

In Victoria, extra time is recommended for motorists this morning. The Victoria Police Department reminded drivers to “remain calm” and cycle and drive with caution.
Attention. The white substance falling from the sky is called “snow”. It happens often in other parts of Canada at this time of year. Remain calm. In all seriousness, pls cycle & drive with caution. It’s a bit slippery out. #yyj #yyjtraffic
