MISSOULA — Many students in Missoula will be getting an unexpected day off on Wednesday.

Missoula County Public Schools (MCPS) has called off class after initially announcing a two-hour delay.

MCPS states in an email that Beach Transportation informed the District that busses were not able to run their normal routes due to icy road conditions.

"The safety of students and staff is our primary concern.," the email reads.

Seeley-Swan High School and The Lifelong Learning Center will remain open on Wednesday.

Target Range School also has called off Wednesday's classes.

Superintendent Heather Davis Schmidt said in an email to MTN News the decision was made "due to unsafe road conditions."

Any questions can be directed to the Target Range School District office at (406) 549-9239.

Target Range School is now canceled all day today due to unsafe road conditions. The Montana Highway Patrol has issued a severe traffic alert asking that people do not travel if they do not have to. Any questions can be directed to the Target Range School District office at (406) 549-9239 and we will respond to questions as soon as we can.

Thanks, Heather
