TRI-STATE (WFIE) - Some local school officials had to make a tough call this morning when deciding what to do about the snow.

In Vanderburgh County, officials say they made their decision at 5:15 a.m.  At that time, officials say the roads were only wet.

The EVSC told 14 News this morning that they had five buses slide during the morning commute. 

One of those slides was caused by a car sliding into a stopped bus. 

No one was hurt.

In Warrick County, the superintendent made the call at 5:30 to keep school starting at its normal time.

Warrick County Superintendent Brad Schneider said that if they had to make the decision all over again, they would have went with a delay.

Warrick officials said they did have a few busses taking alternate route because of snowy hills.

One school bus got stuck on 261 at Gardner Road with students on board.

No one was hurt but the bus had to be towed.

Araceli Thiele is talking with superintendents all over the Tri-State today. She will bring you information on how they came to their decision tonight on 14 News.
