School buses roll, but tensions remain

Since the stoppage Tuesday morning, school officials have been auto-calling parents of the more than 30,000 students who rely on the buses to let them know if they were on the road. But since the buses have been rumbling through the streets for the past two days, officials have decided the daily alert is no longer necessary.
