Seattle Public Schools are open today, but buses will be running two hours late on regular routes due to weather.
The dusting of snow we’ve gotten has made the streets slick enough for Seattle Public Schools to run two hours late today. Buses are on their snow routes, there is no door-to-door service, no breakfast service, no Head Start, and no half-day kindergarten. (Full-day kindergarteners will have the two-hour delay.) Most private schools in town seem to be two hours late as well. See schoolreport.org for details.
The announcement just went up on the Seattle School District website:
“All Seattle Public Schools will start two hours late today and buses will operate on snow routes.
“Due to weather concerns, all schools will start two hours late today. Buses will operate on snow routes. There will be no door-to-door service, no Head Start and pre-school, and no half day a.m. kindergarten or half day p.m. kindergarten. Full day kindergarten classes will be in session with a two-hour start delay. There will no before school breakfast service available.”
We aren’t hearing about any Metro delays on Beacon Hill yet, but things are apparently dicey for the 3 and 4 on Queen Anne at the moment. Allow yourself lots of time for today’s commute just in case.
