Buffalo Public Schools Closed Thursday For Snow Day
It's something that a lot of people didn't think would ever happen again after COVID showed how we could work from home. But tomorrow is a snow day.
When the majority of the population was sent home to work there for months at the beginning of the pandemic a lot of people began to think that traditional snow days would be a thing of the past. Students and adults were able to work from home and it seemed like snow days wouldn't be necessary anymore.
We were wrong.
Today, Buffalo Public Schools made the announcement that they would be canceling classes and closing the central office locations for tomorrow 1/6 in preparation for the incoming storm tomorrow.
It does say that in the future they might make use of remote instruction in the case of inclement weather but in this case, it's a traditional snow day in the sense that the students and staff would get a day off.
At this point, the National Weather Service has issued a Lake Effect Snow Warning for Erie and Genesee Counties. They expect we could see anywhere between 8-15 inches of snow. The warning begins at 7 PM tonight and goes through early Friday morning.
It never hurts to be prepared for inclement weather. It could turn out to be more on the mild side where you live, but if it's possible to avoid being on the roads in case the weather gets bad, why not plan for it?
Remember to have notifications on for weather and traffic on your app and always stay up to date on the conditions no matter where you are.
