After bad weather forced them to spend the night at school, more than 1,000 Atlanta area students are reunited with their parents. Donna Lowry reports.
(WXIA) Children across the Atlanta metro area had to spend Tuesday night in school as school buses couldn't drive on the slick roads.
Students in Marietta, Cherokee County, Atlanta and Paulding County were some of the ones who had to stay sheltered in their schools.
Atlanta Public Schools had 50 students stuck on buses trying to get home overnight.
They all were transported by 9 a.m. Wednesday. A school spokesperson said there were several hundred kids "sheltered in place" at schools primarily in the north and west region of the city.
Those students did get food thanks to the Atlanta Police Department.
About 500 students in Paulding County were stuck at the elementary, middle and high schools and about 1,300 Douglas County students sheltered in place.
