TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa Public School students are now out of snow days.

The district did not cancel classes for the latest round of winter weather and FOX23 found some parents were not happy about that decision.

As parents and buses were dropping kids of off at Grissom Elementary on Tuesday morning the roads were slick, and FOX23 found some upset parents dropping students off.

“I was surprised. Why? The roads are going to be bad later,” said Jerod Show.

He said he was fine with TPD calling off school Monday, but the call this morning surprised him.

As the Oklahoma Department of Transportation urged drivers to use caution on slick roadways, buses were still trudging along picking up students to take to class.

Parents from both Grissom and Thoreau told FOX23 they hit slick spots while on the way to school.

Show told FOX23 he’s worried about neighborhood roads for the driver home from school.

Normally, if a student stays home when school is in session, the absence does count against them.

But Tuesday, there are special circumstances, and FOX23 found out from the district spokesman TPS students whose parents kept them home today will be excused.
