CMS lifts fuel-saving bus ban

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will restore after-hours busing beginning this weekend, but officials say they'll continue to keep an eye on still-erratic fuel supplies.

The district canceled middle-school sports, and some field trips and after-school programs this week, after Hurricane Ike disrupted its supply of diesel fuel. Missed events will be rescheduled.

Events such as high-school band trips scheduled for the weekend will be allowed to proceed. CMS plans to issue another fuel update Monday.
