After yesterday's winter weather, Omaha Public School bus routes experienced some delays Tuesday morning due to slick road conditions in parts of the city. 

OPS elementary school buses reported few delays, according to OPS spokeswoman Monique Farmer. Conversely, many high school buses were delayed this morning, Farmer said, though most arrived at school on time or within 10 minutes of the morning class start bells.

No accidents were reported during the morning bus routes.
