COLBERT COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Aubry Kimbrough said all of the buses were at the schools and everything is ready for those big yellow machines to roll throughout Colbert County this morning picking up students.

“We’ve got everything ready to go. The buses will be rolling (this morning),” said Kimbrough, the director of the Colbert County Board of Education’s transportation department.

Classes in Colbert County, Muscle Shoals and Mars Hill schools resume today.

Lauderdale County begins Monday, and transportation director Kevin Creekmore said state inspectors have been doing last-minute checks on the buses.

“It’s crazy right now, trying to get everything done and get the buses out to the schools,” Creekmore said. “But we’ll be ready to roll out Monday morning.”
