Snow turns to slush, affects schools and buses

January 12th, 2011 · No Comments

As predicted, the last night’s snow has turned to slush as temperatures warm and rain falls.  The Seattle Public Schools have sent out two bits of information:

  • As a precaution for the safety of students and staff, Seattle Public Schools will be running two hours late on regular bus routes.
  • Five schools that had previously scheduled early release days (Whitman, McClure, Hamilton and Eckstein middle schools and Roosevelt High School) will release students at the normal dismissal time.

Wallingford got about 3 inches of snow last night.

King County Metro (@kcmetrobus) tweeted this alert:

Most Metro service on snow routes Wed AM thru 9 AM due to snowy/slushy roads. Expect some delays. Dress warm.

Here is information on changes to Metro service. They’re updating this site, so keep refreshing it for the most current information.
