Students riding home on the bus from Win-E-Mac School (Winger-Erskine-McIntosh) ended up in the ditch Wednesday afternoon.

Win-E-Mac’s superintendent and local law enforcement quickly responded to the scene and got all students to safety.

In most areas of Polk County this week, there was no school Monday or Thursday due to the blizzard-like conditions, and a two-hour delay Tuesday and Friday due to the cold and snow plows working to clear city and rural roads.
