After Monday delay, JCPS says school day runs smoothly

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- After a delay Monday morning, kids were finally back in the classroom and district officials said bus drivers didn't have to deal with any major issues.

Most of the main roads were cleared for the ride to school, but many side roads gave drivers small issues.

"Had one bus get stuck in the middle of the road in a subdivision and one bus slid into a stop sign. No one was hurt. Was able to back up and move on down the road," Director of Transportation Rick Caple said.

He says with a two-hour delay, drivers were able to see the roads -- which is what they wanted.

A WDRB crew followed a school bus as it picked up kids in West Louisville Monday morning and everything seemed to go smoothly.

Officials are hoping this will also be the case tomorrow.

Kids were bundled up by the side of the road, waiting to finally head back to class.

Some parents said it was nice to have the two hour delay.

"It's cold out here now and earlier this morning the sun wouldn't have been up and it was a lot colder. I'm glad they did do the delay. I'm glad school's in," parent James Sanderson said.

JCPS officials are asking drivers to be careful around bus stops because some kids have been standing on the streets, instead of the icy sidewalks.

Also give school buses the right of way.

JCPS says schools will be running on a normal schedule Tuesday.
