LINCOLN COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

Dozens of students were stuck at schools in the Lincoln County R-III District because of poor road conditions Friday night, the district said.

The students were at different schools around the district and were served dinner.

"I was counting their heads, seeing how many we had and I thought if they're here all night, I'm here all night. We're in it for the long haul and we're all in it together," said Sarah Clark, a teacher at Lincoln Elementary.

Clark and several students at Lincoln Elementary spent Friday night at the school after the road conditions deteriorated and they could not be sent home on buses.

"It wasn't scary because we were with people we knew and we had fun with the teachers," said Delicia Garcia, a fifth grader at Lincoln Elementary.

Students watched movies, played games, and were served pizza.

"I think they already knew they could trust their teachers and felt safe here, I just think that reinforced that this is an awesome school. They are loved and cared for," said Stacey Geisendorfer another teacher at Lincoln Elementary.

All students were taken home by 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
