SALT LAKE CITY — Several schools have been closed or delayed due to a heavy snowstorm Wednesday.

Here is a partial list as of 7:45 a.m.

Classes have been canceled at the following school districts:

  • Granite School District
  • Salt Lake City School District
  • Jordan School District
  • Canyons School District
  • Park City School District
  • Tooele School District
  • Murray School District
  • The American International School of Utah (AISU)
  • University of Utah
  • Westminster College
  • Salt Lake Community College
  • All Utah Diocesan Schools along Wasatch Front, except Ogden

Several youngsters in the Holladay area spent the first part of their snow day helping to clear walks in the neighborhood. They are members of an LDS Ward and helped clear snow for right widows who live in the ward.

“We got the call this morning that there was no school and  I`m sure they were thinking ‘yay,’ Keric Kanistanaux said. “There are quite a few widows in the neighborhood and I thought ‘let`s just get the boys out and let`s do some shoveling for them.'”

The boys didn’t mind. “Better than school, better than school,” students Zack Jackson and Breck Kanistanaux said.
