School buses are not running in Regina and Moose Jaw for the fourth day in a row.
Despite clear weather and warmer temperatures, Regina Public Schools said side streets are still not clear enough for school buses to travel safely.
It is warmer, but driving conditions in #yqr's side streets have not improved enough to allow safe passage of buses. All student transportation for Regina Public Schools is CANCELLED FOR THURSDAY, MARCH 8th. #yqrtraffic. Thank you for your understanding.
