Kitsap Transit buses on snow routes; Human Rights Conference canceled

The National Weather Service’s winter weather advisory continues until 8 a.m. Dec. 9, with a 60 percent chance of rain through noon

Enjoy the snow. But if you have to travel, drive safely.

All school districts in Kitsap County, including Bainbridge Island, cancelled school today, according to district alerts, after overnight snowfall that continued this morning.

Today’s Human Rights Conference at Olympic College is cancelled. With the localized snow and all local schools closed, organizers felt it best to cancel the conference. It will be rescheduled at a later date.

The National Weather Service’s winter weather advisory continues until 8 a.m. Dec. 9, with a 60 percent chance of rain through noon.

“We’re seeing slushy accumulations of 2-3 inches of snow in most places, higher totals near Seabeck and the Hood Canal,” the Kitsap County Road Department reported online. “Crews have been working all night, and we have no current reported road closures. Please drive carefully and allow extra time for your commute this morning.”

Kitsap Transit implemented snow routes on one or more bus routes. Go to www.kitsaptransit.com or call 800-501-7433 for snow route information.

Kitsap News Group newspapers will be delivered later than usual because of snow. “Many of the carriers and the managers are unable to move their cars and have gotten stuck getting to our distribution center and some have gotten stuck while delivering the routes,” Regional Circulation Manager Brian Judge reported.

“We expect that there will be many missed-paper complaints. These papers will be delivered but many will be delivered past our delivery deadline.”
