FOX23 contacted area school districts to see plans for students on school buses in cold weather on Wednesday morning.

These are the districts we heard from on Tuesday:

Claremore: Officials said they are not doing anything different. They will have school as usual; they said the buses have heaters.

Bartlesville: Officials said the transportation department does a great job taking caring of buses and students during the cold winter months, and they are prepared to the handle cold weather. They plan to continue operations as normal and will work hard to keep all bus routes running on time.

Muskogee: Officials said, "Our district is going to send out an all-call message this evening to let parents know it will be bitterly cold in the morning and encourage them to take all possible precautions, including bundle up the kids, keep them indoors as long as possible, drive them to the bus stop and keep them in the car, or drive them to school if they possibly can. Students will not be going outside tomorrow with the temperature as it is predicted. Our schools typically keep everyone indoors when the temp dips below the 40s or the windchill is too low.

Okmulgee: Officials said they are not doing anything, there are cold temperatures in Oklahoma every winter. They said they trusted parents to bundle up children for bus stops.

Sapulpa: The district secretary hasn't heard of any preparations for Wednesday.

Pawnee: Officials said they make announcements for students that they have resources for them when they arrive at school. They will be transporting students to different campus locations. It will be a normal school day and they will start buses early to have them warm for when students get on them.
