School busses cancelled, schools closed in Eckville

High school remains open for students writing diploma exams

Temperatures are close to -50C with the wind Tuesday morning, and the extreme cold has caused the cancellation of school bus service and closing the schools.

Wold Creek Public Schools announced Tuesday morning on its website that busses would not be running and the schools in the division are closed.

High schools in the division, such as Eckville Jr Sr High School will remain open if students are writing diplomas.

“Students scheduled to write a diploma exam are expected to make their way to school, ONLY IF THE STUDENT AND THEIR PARENTS/GUARDIANS DETERMINE IT IS SAFE TO DO SO,” the Eckville Jr Sr High School website states.

More information about writing diplomas during school closures can be found on the high school’s website www.

School busses for students attending Catholic school with Red Deer Catholid Regional School have been cancelled but schools remain open, Tuesday.

This affects schools and busses for Blackfalds, Sylvan Lake, Olds, Innisfail and Rocky Mountain House.
