A snowstorm forced several school districts in Utah to cancel classes Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019.
The districts that are not holding classes are Jordan School District, Canyons School District, Park City School District, Tooele County School District, Granite School District, and Salt Lake City School District.
Originally, Salt Lake City Schools, as well as the Murray School District, was on a 2-hour delay, but Salt Lake City has now been canceled.
Salt Lake Community College and the University of Utah Campus are closed until noon.
A Utah Department of Transportation spokesman reported state government offices would resume operations at noon.
The morning commute turned treacherous from the snow causing several cars to slide off the roads and crashes. Driving conditions remain rough even though UDOT is out in force with snow plows.
John Gleason acknowledged through a tweet that there is a total of 550 snow plows in the fleet. He also pleads with drivers not go out if avoidable.
Salt Lake City reported being the hardest hit from Ogden to Utah County with slick conditions on roadways.
