As Alberta remains mired in a deep freeze that prompted Environment Canada to issued extreme cold warnings for all areas of the province this week, a school division serving communities east of Edmonton announced Friday it was cancelling some of its bus services.

In a tweet, Elk Island Public Schools announced its buses that serve Mundare, Andrew and Vegreville were being cancelled for the morning “due to extremely low temperatures.”
