The mini holiday is over plenty of area kids, who will head back to school tomorrow.

Tulsa Public Schools will be open.

That means business as usual for school buses.

FOX23 went to Nathan Hale High School to check out how they're making sure they get everyone to class on time.

Tulsa Public Schools said there were just so many side streets in bad shape on Tuesday, so they decided to take an extra snow day.

But since the temps got above freezing and some of the ice melted, they plan to get everybody to school on time Wednesday.

"We've been going out daily; driving through neighborhoods," Tulsa Public Schools Public Information Officer Chris Payne said.

That's how TPS found out for itself it would have been tricky for some people and bus drivers to get kids to school Tuesday.

"We have six people with the transportation department that go out and do some of the scouting. And we've also had a couple of our executives out just to double check and make sure that we felt comfortable," Payne said.

The melting snow and ice Tuesday made travel a lot easier for drivers in the area. It also helped on some of the side roads with lingering ice. That means TPS won't have to use snow routes for their buses tomorrow.

"There will not be; it will be business as usual," Payne said.

However, if your kids are still waiting on the bus, have them bundle up because even without snow routes, Payne said,
"There may be some instances where it may take a little bit longer. It may be just a little bit slower tomorrow."
