The record snowfall is a welcome relief to Kansas farmers, but the wet and slushy roads are creating troubles for families who live out in the country.
Classes in the Anthony-Harper school district will resume Wednesday for the first time in a week. However, students who live several miles away from school may have trouble making it to class.
County administrators said the wet, heavy snow is not moving well. Ground under the snow is wet, muddy and very soft. The county has advised the district that no school buses run on county roads for several days.
Josh Swartz, USD 361 superintendent, said the district is asking parents to meet buses on paved roads or drop off students at the school. About 100 students live more than 2.5 miles away from school.
Currently, the district does not operate mud routes. Swartz said the district plans to reevaluate a mud route option with the county for the future.
At this time there are no plans to make up the snow days, Swartz said. The district will instead extend the length of the school days if necessary.
