Many Green Country schools are open Tuesday, but Remington Elementary already had some weather-related issues.

The hill Tulsa Public Schools uses to decide whether to cancel school is in front of Remington. On Tuesday morning, one of the buses made it down this hill but slid sideways trying to make it up the second hill.

“It was just a slide, and on that hill it just does not take much to do a slide,” said Remington principal, Dr. Cassandra Funderburk.

After seeing and hearing about the bus’s slide, Funderburk said a lot of parents decided to keep their kids home.

She said only half of her students made it in today.

“We’re warm, and we’re learning. And so for the kids that are here, we’re having a wonderful educational day here,” she said.

John Barker told FOX23 he’s a bit surprised he had to take his kids to Macarthur Elementary in east Tulsa Tuesday morning.

“I’m gonna keep an eye on it, cause i mean if it starts getting too ridiculous I might come get the kid a little early,” said Barker.

Officially, TPS is not releasing kids early Tuesday, but Funderburk told FOX23 she is worried what condition the two hills will be in when kids get out at 2:50.
