The blizzard earlier this week created chaos on Calgary streets, from impassible snow drifts to transit buses being stuck in intersections (for many hours).
A petition was created a few days ago stating that school boards should call a snow day event if conditions during winter storms like this get worse.
It states that by not shutting down schools, it’s “putting many students at risk”.
The petition has reached 1,185 signatures at the time of publishing and has since been closed to further signing.
Many students also took to Twitter and other social media to express their anger against the school board’s decision.
