“This decision was made due to the high confidence of heavy snowfall and strong winds beginning this afternoon with possible visibility issues, creating a driving-hazard situation for our buses, families and staff,” the district wrote in a notice on Tuesday.

The district said that representatives from the Reno and Sacramento National Weather Service reconfirmed reports of their weather alert during a meeting with the district on Tuesday morning.

The NWS issued a Winter Storm Warning from 5 p.m. on Monday to 8 p.m. on Wednesday with the Sierra expected to see 2 to 4 feet of snowfall and 60 mph gusts.
