IRVINE, Calif. -- Hundreds of students from the Irvine Unified School District were able to return home on Monday after getting snowed in at science camps in the San Bernardino Mountains.
Students left for the camps last Tuesday and were supposed to return Friday, but mother nature had other plans.
The students were left stranded over the weekend, leaving their worried loved ones at lower elevations hoping crews could get the children home as soon as possible.
