Despite dismissing at noon, Palmyra Superintendent Eric Churchwell was forced to bring back five buses because of treacherous road conditions.
Churchwell said he had approximately 200 students in the school gymnasium until about 3 p.m. Most of them were picked up by parents with a few taken home by Churchwell and transportation director Brian Wosman.
"We will keep the students here all night if we have to," Churchwell said earlier.
The buses brought back to the school included numbers 1, 2, 4, 5 and 8.
