UPDATE | Bainbridge schools to be closed again Tuesday

Bainbridge Island public schools will be closed Tuesday, Feb. 12 due to snow and road conditions.

Schools across the island were also shut down Monday as Western Washington continues to dig its way out of last weekend’s snowstorm while another one dumps even more snow on the area.

Bainbridge school district officials said there will be no out-of-district transportation available Tuesday.

A decision regarding Tuesday’s afternoon and evening activities will be made later.

A winter storm warning remains in effect for the region through 4 a.m. Tuesday.

Heavy snow and what officials called “treacherous” road conditions Sunday prompted city officials to close Bainbridge Island City Hall Monday.

The city canceled planned meetings Monday evening for its Marine Access Committee and Ethics Board.

City officials said road conditions were “continue to deteriorate” at 4:30 p.m. Monday and asked residents to stay off the roads if possible.

Heavy snowfall led school districts across Kitsap County and Western Washington to cancel school for Monday and Tuesday.

Governments across the region also closed.

The Kitsap County Courthouse and all county offices were ordered closed Monday, Feb. 11 due to the snow, and the Kitsap Board of County Commissioners meeting planned for Monday in Poulsbo was also called off.

Washington State Ferries also halted operations at its customer service call center due to winter weather conditions.
