High waters and flooded streets kept some Rockingham County students at school late Tuesday.
About 60 students from the Bergton and Criders areas were held for an hour and a half at Fulks Run Elementary, after emergency services contacted the school system about flooded roads.
Most of those students were picked up by parents, but eventually the buses got the rest of the children home safely.
Parents say they're thankful the school system handled it this way.
"Oh I thought it was a good thing, because at the time that school let out, it would've been a bad thing to let the buses through that water. It would've been dangerous. It was at the high point at that point," says Susan Brown, whose two grandchildren attend Fulks Run Elementary.
One of the two buses had to drive a longer route through West Virginia to get students home.
The other got through when water receded, being escorted by another transportation vehicle.
