Abbotsford and Mission school districts, along with almost every Lower Mainland school district, have cancelled classes for teachers and students today due to the winter conditions.
Just after 5 a.m., Jan. 6, the districts sent out notifications of the snow day via social media.
Due to the #BCstorm, all #AbbySchools will be CLOSED to staff + students for Jan. 6, 2022. Employees designated as winter services personnel are expected to report to work. If you cannot attend your regular place of work, please contact your supervisor. #Abbotsford pic.twitter.com/V8v2hI1NDY

A mix of rain, snow, freezing rain and heavy winds will be hitting the Lower Mainland from now until Friday, Environment Canada says in their winter storm warning. Up to a foot of snow fell on the Fraser Valley overnight, as the cold snap continues to hit B.C.
