Humberside Police has received reports from parents of snowballs being thrown by young people at houses in and around Brumby School in Scunthorpe.
The weather has caused problems on the roads, with motorists reporting journeys taking longer than usual.
The A18 junction with the B1210 Kirmington is closed due to accident on A18. The road is said to be blocked.
Snow has also closed the third lane of the M180 and traffic is also busy on the M181 due to ongoing roadworks.
Flights from Robin Hood Airport are also affected and Humberside Airport say there are delays due to the weather. They ask passengers to check with their airline before setting off.
A broken down car on the A15 is also causing problems.
