As of 9:30 a.m., the school is running on generator power and has no heat, phones or internet so unable to communicate the information out, said a post from a parent on Facebook.

Cawston Primary is also closed because the power is out on Monday, Nov. 7. All busses to both schools are cancelled due to treacherous snow conditions.

Some neighbourhoods have been experiencing power outages due to the snow storm and several roads are slushy and slippery.
