Other divisions closing schools include Evergreen, Interlake, Lord Selkirk, Pine Creek, Prairie Rose, Sunrise, Western, Prairie Spirit and Garden Valley.

Meanwhile, the City of Winnipeg says Brookside, St. Vital and Transcona cemeteries will be closed until further notice because of blowing snow and poor driving conditions.
