Broken Arrow public schools have canceled classes in part because of the roads and freezing temperatures.
FOX23 found out what officials said was the final deciding factor to call off class.
Arterial streets have been a priority for the city of Broken Arrow.
We found out crews will continue to plow and treat the roads through Monday. While the streets are clear, that's not the concern for BA public schools.
It's the neighborhood streets.
A spokesperson with BA public schools told FOX23 that they made the call to cancel class on Monday after school personnel checked out some of the residential streets.
"We had people out driving, having trouble getting around in cars, so there is no way our school buses will be able to get through the neighborhoods safely"
Drivers tell us they'd have to agree because the side streets are, "horrible, just absolutely ice impacted," said one Tulsa neighbor.
The other concern was that the roads would refreeze.
School representatives said they wanted to look out for the student drivers who were inexperienced driving on ice.
