Bus services for Live Oak Elementary , Northlake Hills Elementary  and Castaic Middle School  were affected for the morning of Monday, Jan. 13, though Garcia said that special education buses were not affected.
“The last time we weren’t able to get buses out was in the 80s when we had a snow day,” he said.
