Weather delayed Thousand Islands Central School students from taking buses home

TOWN OF CAPE VINCENT, N.Y. (WWNY) - Hundreds of students in the Thousand Islands Central School District left school a little late Friday afternoon due to the weather.

It was all because it wasn’t safe enough for buses to take them home.

District Transportation Supervisor Dina Jareo said the school buses were held at the request of road supervisors in the towns of Clayton and Cape Vincent.

Jareo said the weather was clear in the area until about 2 p.m. when heavy snow began to fall, making travel difficult.

Around 300 students were able to board the buses and head home shortly after 4 p.m.
