The Rochester Public Schools alerted parents this afternoon that buses are being stopped due to severe weather. Here is the message:

Dear RPS Parents:

This may or may not impact you, but we are messenging all families.

Rochester Public Schools has made a decision to hold the Elementary School students at their school site until further notice due to the storm moving through our area. Students who walk or ride the bus will not be leaving the school, parents who are already at the site, or are enroute to the site may take their students home if they choose to do so.

Students that have already dismissed from school, but may not be home yet (middle schools and high schools), are held on their school buses at this time and buses are not traveling on the roads.

This is the safest solution for our students at this time and we will provide another update once we release the buses.

We appreciate your patience - the safety of our students is our top priority!

What's your reaction?
