Weather Causes Problems For School Vehicles

At Least 17 Buses Wouldn’t Start Thursday Morning

Posted: February 7, 2014 at 5 a.m.

Dale Shouse, bus driver for the Springdale School District, unpluggs the block heater to his bus Thursday, Feb. 16, 2014 during his pre-trip check at the district's bus yard off Emma Avenue in Springdale. Shouse runs routes to Hunt Elementary and Har-Ber High School. The recent winter weather has left snow and ice on many of the side streets that has altered some bus routes.

Jennifer McClory’s car slid into the bus lane when she dropped her son off Thursday at school in Bentonville.
