School bus

Richland School District changed to a three-hour class delay Tuesday morning after buses began experiencing issues in the frigid temperatures, Superintendent Arnold Nadonley said.

The added delay was necessary because fuel was jelling and school officials worried the buses might become disabled on the roadways, Nadonley said.

The district sent out an automated weather alert Tuesday morning, which was also posted on the school's website.

"We apologize to everyone for any inconvenience this morning. But once this started happening, we wanted to be safe. Taking a chance ... wasn't worth jeopardizing their kids," he said.
