Metro Service During Snow Days

All high schools, Bellevue Big Picture and International School use Metro. During periods of poor weather, Metro will attempt to maintain service according to schedule — even if school is to start late. Please listen to messages and have alternative means arranged to get to and from school if poor weather is present or predicted.
