South Tampa school buses arrived on time but could be late bringing kids home

TAMPA — Buses taking students to Gorrie Elementary, Wilson Middle and Plant High School all arrived on time Tuesday morning, according to the Hillsborough County school district. But parents at all three south Tampa schools are warned to expect afternoon delays because of traffic associated with the Republican National Convention.

"As far as I know, everything's working out," said school district spokeswoman Linda Cobbe. She and other downtown Tampa school district employees have been relocated to other sites this week. Rampello K-8 Downtown Partnership School is closed.
