Cold Slows Buses for District 833

The frigid temperatures caused 15 buses to experience “fuel gelling,” according to South Washington County Schools.

The bitter cold that descended on Woodbury and the state caused issues for District 833 buses on Tuesday morning.

Fifteen buses experienced “fuel gelling,” which caused them to stall after they left for their regular runs, according to a notice from South Washington County Schools. (Transportation officials were out on Monday and early Tuesday ensuring the buses would start.)

The district sent out replacement buses, and aside from some slightly late arrivals at middle schools, the rest were expected to get students to school on time for the most part, according to the district.
