As Ottawa gears up for a major snowstorm beginning around midday on Tuesday, the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority is warning parents that school buses may be delayed on their routes home.

“Please remember that parents or guardians always have the option to make alternate arrangements or keep their child(ren) at home,” the authority tweeted on Tuesday morning.

The snowfall beginning Tuesday afternoon is expected to unload 30 to 40 centimetres of fresh powder on Ottawa over a period of approximately 24 hours.
