WEST ORANGE, N.J. — As the snowstorm left commuters frustrated and stuck in traffic, students in New Jersey were left stranded in the school, PIX11 reports.

School buses were unable to get to schools in West Orange, forcing the district to keep the children overnight.

About 25 teachers and about 100 students spent the night inside Liberty Middle School.

The school’s principal kept the public updated with pictures and the latest information on their students, who were kept entertained and fed.
