Tofino and Ucluelet schools closed on Tuesday due to icy roads

“Although there was not as much snow as predicted, the roads are still very slippery in some areas.”

Jack Frost worked just hard enough overnight to score a day off school for West Coast kids.

School has been cancelled in both Tofino and Ucluelet on Tuesday, Feb. 12, due to icy road conditions.

“Although there was not as much snow as predicted, the roads are still very slippery in some areas so we are not running the busses just to be safe,” reads an announcement on Ucluelet Secondary School’s website.
