MANY schools remain closed after more snowfall at the weekend.
While more than 450 schools decided to shut on Friday after hours of continuous snow, 13 early years providers, 82 schools and five children's centres across the county were still out of action on Monday.
Travel disruption was also set to continue with South West Trains again running a revised service because of the freezing conditions.
SWT blamed its decision to run a reduced service on the fact that ice can form on the rail line which powers the trains. There was no service between Ascot and Ash Vale and only a limited service between Aldershot and Guildford on Monday.
The train company is yet to decide whether to implement the same reduced services on Tuesday.
Among those schools taking the decision to close again were Butterflies and Dragonflies Children's Centre in Fernhill Road, Cove, as the day will be spent clearing the paths and roadways on site.
Farnborough Grange Nursery and Infant Community School was also shut.
Bentley Church of England Primary School in Farnham delayed its opening time until 10am to allow children to be dropped off later.
The Connaught School in Aldershot was open for Years 10 and 11 at 9.50am and to Years 7, 8 and 9 at 11.10am.
Robert May's School in Odiham, Manor infants and juniors in Cove and St Michael's pre-school in Aldershot all remain closed.
Some of those opening later to allow staff to clear sites included Hook infants and juniors, Fernhill primary, The Wavell School, and Park Primary and Talavera Junior in Aldershot.
An ice warning was put in place by the Met Office for the south east region.
