In Valley View School District in Romeoville and Bolingbrook, classes were slated to go on as scheduled, other officials noted that in-district buses may experience delays. "All 'XOD' (out-of-district) buses have been canceled this morning to make sure we have enough drivers to handle our in-district bus routes," the district said in a release.
