Surrey schools open after two snow days

Superintendent Jordan Tinney says if parents feel it’s unsafe for children to ‘make your own individual decision’

After two snow days, classes are back in session in Surrey today.

Public schools in Surrey and White Rock schools are open today.

Surrey School District Superintendent Jordan Tinney made the announcement before 6 a.m. Wednesday (Feb. 13).

“Parents, if you feel it is unsafe for your child, of course make your own individual decision,” Tinney tweeted. “Again huge thanks to our CUPE 728 crews for clearing lots and City of Surrey Cupe Local 402 street crews. Amazing effort.”

Kwantlen Polytechnic University and Simon Fraser University campuses are also open today.

Environment Canada has no weather alerts in effect for Metro Vancouver, as of 6:20 a.m. Wednesday.
